Leg waxing brings the cash in!!

posted in: Fundraising

Fifth year classmates at Selkirk High School dug deep for Katie’s Trust when Kerr bravely offered to have his legs waxed on last day of term.  Katie W was on hand to do the waxing/inflict the pain – we are all wondering if it was as sore as it sounds?  I am sure that someone will be producing the evidence on FB shortly.  Bruce (aka Beyonce) was doing a brisk trade at the same time with wristbands.  Between them the boys raised a fantatsic £231 – a fantastic effort and thanks to everyone who contributed.

Coal Porters rock Midlem

posted in: Events, Fundraising, News


Friday night saw the return of Sid Griffin and the Coal Porters to their favourite venue – Midlem Village Hall.  The place was packed in anticipation of a great evening – and we were not disappointed.  There were all the old favourites, some new songs from album to be released in September and an outrageous cover of Paint it Black (Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na-Na…..)!!

There were many familiar faces in the audience from 18 months ago and we used the interval to update everyone on what Katie’s Trust has been doing – **newsletter**

For those of you who missed the gig but might be intrigued who the Coal Porters are then have a look at the website – Coal Porters.  And if you want a sample of their music then here is one of our favourites – Closing Time Genius.

Many thanks to Phil & Patricia (who sadly missed the gig), Midlem Hall Committee, the audience and especially the Coal Porters!  You helped us raise a fantastic £675!!

BIG cheque from Selkirk High School

posted in: Fundraising, News

Ann and I have just returned from the end of term assembly at Selkirk High School.  We were presented with a £2,000 cheque by the sixth year charity committee.  They have been busy all year with events like wear-what-you-want days and Christmas bazaar, culminating in a 10-mile sponsored walk.  We would like to say a big ‘thankyou’ to Fergus, the sixth years and everyone who supported them.
