Just a little update on my charity fundraiser, as some of you may be aware I am giving up alcohol for July in aid of Derian House childrens Hospice in Bolton.
Day 9 – and so far so good!
I’ve had a few ventures to pubs and realised it is actually quite hard to choose a soft drink and it’s also slightly embarrassing especially as in last week when a barman laughed at me for “just ordering an orange juice”.
So far I’ve had two work events where Cranberry and OJ have ruled, two trips to the pub – a nice refreshing Coca-Cola when everyone else was on Beck Vier (one of my favourite beers!) and I helped an old university friend celebrate his 25th with dinner at Wagamama’s (ordered still water!) and a pint of OJ and Lemonade in the pub afterwards!
I’ve already survived one weekend but naturally more to come this month and more potentially boozy work events – including tonight actually with a supplier roof top party!!!
What has amazed me is the level of donations by family, friends and work colleagues – I’ve already managed to raise £290 which is a fantastic amount of money for the children’s hospice. Plus I know a few mates and looking at tactical bets and waiting until I cave in to then put a greater amount down – as I originally promised I would double the total amount!
So far, so good!
Thank you again for those who have already donated and those that haven’t here is the link – http://www.justgiving.com/nopintsforchris
