A couple of weeks ago, The Club ran its second annual race night for the Give a Little campaign in support of the orphanage, raising 80 000 ft on the night. A huge thanks to Michael, Gary, Stuart, Alan, and Rita and everyone else who contributed to making it such a great night. The fact that my horses are all still running is neither here nor there! The Club meets each Friday at Champs Sports Bar on Dohany utca and will present their donation on 3 May - come along and show your support.
Then the wonderful Beth Spisljak, our very own Zumba Queen, ably assisted by her equally wonderful husband Zoran and the inimitable Ms Nicole Jones, organised a charity Zumba event and raised a whopping 62 000 ft. Not bad work for a couple of hours on a Saturday morning. And, picture this: she even had me moving, which in itself is a monumental achievement. If you haven't yet tried it, check out the next class on Wednesday. It kicks off at 6.30pm at Kmety György utca 15., Budapest, Hungary, 1062. Have fun while getting fit. What more could your body ask for?
And, if this wasn't enough, today I had a call from Gerrards International who donated a further
100 000 ft to the kitty. Am blown away.
This means that the total raised for the 2013 GOTG is a record-breaking 1,484,000 ft, every single forint of which will go to replacing all 17 interior doors in one of the wings. What an achievement. A heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed in any away at all. This is an amazing testament to what we can do if we pull together united in a cause.
