Open Gardens 21st June 2009

Don't forget to visit the village of Houghton and Wyton on Sunday 21st June when some of the finest gardens in this Cambridgeshire village will be open to visitors in aid of our PANTS project.

The targets set by our charities, The Parkinson's Diesease Society and the Alzheimer's Society, have already been met thanks to our sterling efforts so all money raised at this event go directly to both charities. In the case of PDS all to the local branch. Hope to see you there!

CONGRATULATIONS Alzheimer's Society

Named professional fundraising charity of the year this week!

The fruit of her loins!

Helen's completely obsessed with PANTS, as those who know and love her can testify to. Not content with clearing the market out on a regular basis she's now been cultivating PANTS shape fruit for the village show.

Balls on Fire!

Our charity golf day raised a whopping £930 thanks to the 23 golfers who supported us on 29th May at Abbotsley Golf Club, in Cambridgeshire. Sporting specially provided pants the boys did us proud for a press shot which this week we hope to see in the Hunts Post! The overall winner was Steve Jeffs who walked away with a day at Brands Hatch in September thanks to EACS of Kimbolton who so generously donated the main prize of the day. PANTS branded golf balls were provided by Acushnet of St Ives. Our MC and organiser Anthony is clearly having trouble with his pants!!

Well done Blue Peter

Excited and impressed to watch Helen from Blue Peter run the 24 hr Ultrathon in Namibia. What an achievement and what an inspiration. Delighted to see the Across The Divide team putting on such an impressive event in Africa and feel even more excited about the prospect of going there in October with the ATD team who've been fabulous. Alison (1/4 PANTS). That's probably too many excited's in one paragraph but its all very .... exciting!

Better than a May Ball!

Wow feedback during the week post the Ball has been brilliant. We raised around £2,500 which isn't bad in these recessionary times and of course what was important too was that people had a great time. More photos to follow but here's us PANTS girls doing things with pants - again!

Charity Ball huge success!

We did it! The Charity Ball was a great success on Saturday night and all our hard work paid off. We're waiting to hear what the final sum raised has been but here's us having fun with our tools - getting in shape for the renovations we're going to undertake in Namibia! Thanks to Janey Lee Grace and all our entertainers who helped make the Ball 'better than a May Ball'! Love and thanks from the PANTS girls. Helen, Karen, Fi and Alison
