Fundraising at the Car Boot Sale

We were up bright and early this morning for a car boot sale on Bessimer Road, Cardiff. We had a massive sort out around the house and took a selection of old clothes and jewelry, household items, and cakes too. It was absolutely freezing but at least it stayed dry!

After much haggling (mostly on the buyers behalf as we weren’t budging on some items), we managed to raise a total of £123.28, but still have plenty left to sell at future events. After a chat with a fellow car booter we will mostly be heading for Sully Car Boot in April. The money raised will be used to cover some of the costs of our challenges this year (the triathlon was nearly £100 each!!) with any left overs at the end of the year going into the charity.

Today was a brilliant first experience for us, but we have got to say a big thank you to:

The Print Centre Cardiff for covering the costs of other printing a couple of posters to explain what we are doing,
Classic Sportswear for our polo shirts,
Matt for some gorgeous Chelsea Buns and Lemon Cakes,
Clem for the chocolate cakes and mixed berry cakes,
Andy and the team at Bessimer Road for slashing the cost of letting two cars in as it was for charity,
And lastly anyone who donated money and gave us their words of wisdom at Bessimer Road (inc a kind gentleman who donated a table for future use!).

Not long left til our swimming challenge so its back into the pool for us!
