Thank you.

Thank you to the staff and customers of Waitrose! Our bucket collection broke the £200 mark. (£200-74). The staff made us very welcome, and the customers showed genuine interest in our work.

Also, thanks to the Plymouth Coasters for listening to my presentation a fortnight ago, and for raising some useful questions about the charity. The Coasters have chosen PL-ease as their charity of the year for 2009. If anyone else would like a presentation on the Objects and fundraising activities of PL-ease, just drop me an e-mail : admin@pl-ease.org.uk.

Spent the last few weeks finishing off a pretty demanding 10,000 word assignment for a management course. The course has provided me with an insight into some useful techniques in terms of supply chain management, marketing, change management etc. Looking forward to putting these to good use for the charity!

Now that is out of the way, more effort will be put towards publicising the charity and future events. Tickets for the concert are going pretty slowly, but there will be a blitz on e-mails, flyers etc this week and next. Don't forget to buy some tickets - the concert features five very talented local musicians. All are giving their time for free. The only expenses are the hire of the Playhouse. It will be a great opportunity to hear some fantastic live music, and to learn a bit more about the charity.

See you there?!
