Everest Base Camp Trek 2018

Posted by | fitness, gratitude, Special supporters | No Comments

One of our stalwart supporters, Graham Lawson, has decided to take on the challenge of a lifetime and do a trek to Everest Base Camp.   Graham has been a supporter for many years now since his daughter Tabby was diagnosed with cancer when she was 6.   Tabby is now well and one of our Young Ambassadors – an enthusiastic and successful fundraiser too!  Graham has already climbed Kilimanjaro and trekked in the Arctic for us but this is in a different league.  Everest Base Camp trek is tough.

He has even managed to persuade four friends to join him on this challenge in April 2018. Hats off to him, Janette and Patrick Statham, and Peter and Margaret Andrews.

The photo below was when Graham was training for the Arctic Trek – you might recognise his companion!  (none other than Scottish Rugby legend, Gavin Hastings)

If you would like to donate to their fundraising page you can do so by clicking here.

They have a fundraising event coming up on 12 April – a winetasting at Murrayfield – only £12 per ticket (and you get £10 to spend at Majestic wines in the future so it’s a real bargain).  If you want to know more about their fundraiser then please do contact us and we can put you in touch with the trek team.

Can you help us in 2018?

Posted by | Donations, Events | No Comments

There are many ways to support our wee charity but in this post I am asking for help with prizes for our events during 2018

We would so very much appreciate help securing some high value prizes for  3 events we are benefiting charity at.  We provide 4 prizes for each event and in return receive financial donations from guests.  Prizes are often spa treatments, or a hotel stay with dinner and breakfast, or the loan of a car for the weekend with an afternoon tea at a 5 star hotel,  or a case of wine or a hair or beauty hamper.

For our own events this year we only have 2 events – Blingo and the Ball.   Blingo needs lots of raffle prizes with a value around £50 and this year we also need silent auction items as we are holding a silent auction for the first time at Blingo.  At our Ball we only have 4 main auction items but we make them special – we already have two pledged!  If you can donate or pledge something extra special ( a holiday in New York for example) or something unusual (remember Johnny Ca$h Coo? and the stunning Silver Ash Beaker)  we would love to hear from you.

If you are able to donate a voucher or product for any of our events please do get in touch – we have always organised our own events and receive such terrific support from you – fingers crossed you can help again this year.

Email me on Lynne@itsgood2give.co.uk if you can help

Thank you!

Young Ambassador Blair – an entrepreneur in the making

Posted by | Ambassadors, kindness, Uncategorized, young ambassadors | No Comments

2018 is the Year of the Young People.  I am very proud of all my Young Ambassadors

Blair has been a Young Ambassador for a year now and is a force to be reckoned with!  His enthusiasm for It’s Good 2 Give shines through all he does.  His fundraising idea is a cracking one.

Blair has had water bottles printed with our logo on them and he is selling them for only £4 per bottle or £7 for two.

He can post them out to you (post and packing at cost) and he deserves to sell out!

Will you help him do that?

Bottles can be bought by contacting us and we will pass your orders along to him!  (Did I say he was only 9?)
