Charity CD

The idea of a charity CD featuring music from a range of talented local musicians has really taken off! Within the space of a week we have had offers from enough artists to complete the CD!!

Artists include Katie Marie, Chris Woods, Karen Money, The Vics, Jenny Keegan.

All proceeds from the sale of the CD will go to PL-ease. Keep your ears peeled for announcements regarding the sale of this wonderful (dare I say Christmas?) gift.

Have a good week.

Music to my ears

Money starting to come in from the charity treetop adventure. £300+ so far. Thank you treetoppers!

Looking forward to our next charity fundraising effort. The plan is to get a number of our most talented local musicians to provide one or two songs to go onto a CD. The compilation will then be sold with all profits going to PL-ease. Positive response received so far from Jenny Keegan, Karen Money and Chris Woods. Thank you all.

Watch this space...

Absolutely Wow!

As the young lad who followed us down the last zip slide said - "Absolutely Wow!"

Many thanks to our team of intrepid treetoppers - and very many thanks to the excellent guidance from the Rock Centre. What an excellent way to spend a Sunday morning!

The treetop adventure involved walking across a series of walkways between platforms up in the trees. The first walk was on wooden decking (2 planks wide). The next went to one plank wide, and the next went to stepping between planks suspended from rope. The final walkway was along a single rope, with rope rails to hold on to. The last couple involved a lot of swaying..and thought of how high we were and how far there was to go!

The zip slides were fantastic. As with other things like this - the first step is the worst. The feeling of whizzing through the trees then takes over. Very exhilarating.

Anyway, many thanks to everyone involved - and time for the sponsors to pay up. Every penny was well earned!
