Sponsored Sock Wash, Summer 2002

It is refreshing to see new ideas on how to raise money towards our worthy cause.  This I believe is a first.

We are very grateful to the 1st Market Harborough Guides for their fund raising efforts.  Below is an extract from the letter we received from their Unit Guider.

"Over the Summer, the 1st Market Harborough Guides took part in an International Challenge, one part of which was to find out about a local charity, which works abroad.  They had to find out about the work of the charity, and then raise funds to help. To this end, I invited a local member of the NNRT to talk to them about the work of the North Nibley Romania Team in Mina 1 Mai."

"The girls were very taken with the Washing Machine project, and immediately decided  that they really wanted to do something to help.  A plan was quickly hatched to hold a sponsored sock wash, and combine it with a fun evening of sock related games"

"After all the fun was over, and the last of the sponsor money finally gathered in, I am very glad to be able to forward to you the sum of 103.30 with our very best wishes for the success of the project."

Below are some photographs of the girls taken during the event.
