I have been busy this week organising a Charity Quiz Night for Addenbrooke's Hospital on Facebook. I set up the Auction for Addenbrooke's Facebook group over a year ago now and it's been pretty successful. We've raised nearly £2,000 for a new automatic syringe pump for the neonatal ward. The reason we started the group is in this post here, Originally posted over a year ago, it tells the story of a small boy who, although he lived just two days, created a legacy that will last a lifetime.
It's getting harder to secure donations, though, as our economy finds it's way through some tough times and people are tightening their belts more than ever. So, I thought it was time for a new idea. An event on Facebook, that anyone can join with prizes donated by companies. The questions will be posed by bloggers, about something you can find on their blog. They will be making a small donation to the fund, for the priviledge of introducing lots of lovely people to their brilliant blogs! So, if you would like to register for the Quiz Night, join the event here, or, if you have a lovely blog and you would like to pose a question on the night, get in touch with me, via my Facebook Page here. I would really love to have your support. Like a lot of my mad ideas, it can only really work with lots of people involved! Thanks and good luck in the quiz, if you do come and join us!
