MegaMeet 10 - Donations and scrounging begins here. Please help.

We are making final preparations for Megameet 10 (yes the tenth!!) in delightful Mid Wales.

It is, so far, an incredible turn out with 70 cars planned to be in attendance so it promises to be a great meet. As ever we will be doing our bit to raise money for our Members Chosen Charity of the Year which this year is Macmillan Cancer Support

Last year we raised a staggering £5,414.50 which was split in equal amounts and donated to Cancer Research UK and Help for Heroes charities. We can only hope, that with your help, we can do just as well this year.

So....

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

  • Have you got something you could donate as a raffle or auction prize?
  • Could you scrounge something from a local dealer, or similar?
  • Are you a business who'd like to benefit not only the charity, but yourselves by getting free PR/Advertising?
  • Maybe you travel a lot for work and stay in hotels - could you persuade them for an overnight B&B voucher perhaps?
  • Does your work place do anything special? Would they donate something?


Then please let us know by emailing charity@s2kuk.com

Anything, no matter how big or small, will help us towards the fund raising.

Also we need some volunteers to help contact our list of traders/sponsors etc. please get in touch - many hands make light work!

Thank you in advance for any help!

XM9 - raises £300 to feed Homeless on Christmas Day 2012

As a surprise, we arranged Casino tables for XM and much fun was had by all.

Needless to say the fun helped us to raise some money for charity, thanks to selling the 'fun money' to exchange for casino chips!

We raised an amazing £300 to help feed Homeless people in Northampton on Christams Day this year.  Their funding pot also had a little boost as it was paid over from me thus they got Gift aid.

Thanks everyone for being so generous - our great Christmas Party night means that some less fortunate than us will have a a tasty meal on Chritmas day.  Perhaps we should also mention that a few other folk who were at the same party also chipped in - so Barclays at Foleshill ROad Coventry and Mrs Jordan's table...thank you too!

Happy Christmas everyone
