Birthday Party and Charity Raffle

Thank you to everyone who came to our Birthday Party at the weekend, what a huge success! It was lovely to spend our special night with our friends, family and those who have supported us along the way. Thanks to the AWESOME Calm Doon Ceilidh Band for keeping us dancing all night, and to The Grassmarket Community Project for hosting us.

During our First Birthday Party last weekend we held a charity raffle in aid of The Cookie Jar Foundation and the Edinburgh MS Therapy Centre.

Both charities are very close to our hearts for many reasons, and with Maclay, Murray and Spence LLP charitable trust DOUBLING all donations we are delighted to announce that we raised a massive £500!

We obviously could not have managed ourselves, we were supported by some wonderful local organisations who very generously donated prizes.

 

Escape Edinburgh Edinburgh’s first live Escape Game who donated a gift voucher

The Stand Comedy Club One of our favourite Edinburgh institutions donated 2 tickets to any show

Pickering’s Gin Our lovely little local gin producers donated a tour of the distillery, with a wee tipple

Arbikie Gin who donated a bottle of Kirsty’s delicious gin, made in our beautiful Scottish Highlands

Thistly Cross Everyone’s favourite local cider-supplier who donated 12 bottles of their lovely brew (and kept us in cider for the night too!)

The Carlton Hotel The spectacular Carlton Hotel who very generously donated a champagne afternoon tea!

Brodies 1867 A beautiful hamper full of delicious goodies, including their fabulous teas, coffee, hand made choccies and cakes!

Eteaket The lovely people at Eteaket donated a One Cup Starter Kit – a perfect introduction to their glorious teas!

The Royal Yacht Britannia Who donated tickets to explore the UKs number one visitor attraction (and see the Queen’s bed!)

The Scotch Whisky Experience Who donated a voucher for a family tour of their 5 star attraction and to have a wee dram.

And not forgetting Sainsbury’s West Port who donated some very scrummy boxes of chocolates.

No wonder we raised so much money – these were amazing prizes, we are so grateful to everyone who helped this wonderful cause!!

Thank you to Mamma’s Pizza for bringing us their delicious pizza to keep us dancing, it was sooooo good (as always!).
