Hello there you lovely lot,

I hope that you are all having a brilliant long Easter weekend.

A huge, massive thank you to everyone who came along to busk on behalf of Cancer Research – you were all amazing. Susan who organised it said that they raised £277 for the day – this is the highest that she has raised in the high street and she has arranged a few, so we can be assured that we helped them raise this great amount. Thank you!

Also, we have now had a letter of thanks from the Disasters Emergency Committee for the £100 that we donated to them towards their East Africa Crisis Appeal… thank you for agreeing to us making the donation.

That is more than enough from me, enjoy what remains of the weekend and we will see you on Wednesday!
