My ‘Fizzy Friday’ for The British Heart Foundation

On 3rd February 2017, I hosted a Fizzy Friday event at my house in aid of The British Heart Foundation. I wore my red BHF jumper and decorated my kitchen with BHF merchandise – some red and white bunting, way too many red balloons and as many other heart themed things that I could find. I think it’s fair to say I went a bit mad, actually! The plan however, was quite simple – a team of ladies, hoards of cake, 32 bottles of prosecco and one simple mission: to raise as much money as possible for the fabulous charity (aptly close to my own heart). People were kind enough to donate, buy and make raffle prizes (I ended up with over 50!), they bought and made cakes (some of the most incredible I’ve ever seen and tasted), plenty bought tickets for the draw, donated prosecco and 25 lovely ladies joined me on the night to raise the funds with me. Between the raffle, an activity themed sweep stake and a Guess How Many Sweets are in the jar competition – we managed an impressive £300. In addition to the tickets that I had sold in advance of the night, that brought the overall total to £480! I am absolutely thrilled with this and want to thank everyone that supported me. I am so grateful to all of you, especially my mum Paula who persistently popped and poured prosecco all night (rather you than me!), my Nanna Gordon (Mags to everyone else) for everything she did – including running out to get milk when I had a nervous breakdown because I forgot to buy some, my mother-in-law Carol who drew the raffle tickets, my boss and my friend Julie who did the maths (I’d have been screwed without you!!!) and my fiancé Darren who cleaned up the mess the following day while I moaned about having the world’s worst hangover. Finally, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone that took the time and effort to buy or make a raffle prize or a cake or bring the all important bubbles, and of course, for your generous donations… thank you.
