Fundraising results


Recommended Posts

Firstly thanks to every single person that donated and massive thanks to Kimbers for sorting out the licence to collect money & putting his hand in his pocket first to buy all those badges, key rings etc to get us started.

The total amount raised needs to be confirmed once Kimbers has fished all the 2p's out of the boot of his car & had a count up! Big thanks to our storm troopers for collecting all of that money.

The auction of promises was such a great success; Bibs & Kimbers done a great job of making sure everyone dug deep (sometimes without even realising they had placed a bid!) and gave us all a good laugh in the process. Here's the final results of the auction and who won what. Apologies if I've got anyone's name wrong, I may only have first names/surnames/forum names or some of you. As you may have noticed I was running round like a crazy woman trying to keep up with the auction!

Even more thanks to everyone that kindly donated the items/experiences and to Mike Kimberley for staying up all night to sign countless items for the winners.

Hi Laura,

I am the "Van Ransbeeck" , very happy being able to donate some money through the auction.

Does everybody feel the same way about how Bibs went about ? Man, he was good.

It was almost like watching a stand up comedian. I had a great time during the auction , this guy is talented.

Thanks, I knew you'd told me your first name at some point.... I just couldn't remember it!

I think the auction was fantastic, not sure that Bibs would have been quite as funny if it wasn't for a few pints of Guiness before hand!

Bibs & Kimbers both done a fantastic job getting people to part with their hard earned cash with a smile on their faces at the same time!

With the cash we raised during the evening I've been a complete bounder and pocketed it all I'm afraid. :(

Feeling bad, I have now donated the exact same amount of money personally on behalf of you guys, which now attracts somewhere in the region of

Ahhh, That was me looking at the Bratwurst.

As an employee of Honda it's always best to check out what the lesser mortals are driving. :)

Of course I am happy to take part exchanges, though I may need to be charitable with the trade in figures :)
