How do you raise £474 in one Sunday afternoon?
By selling tickets in advance for a garden BBQ, enrolling a team of helpers, setting up the BBQ, preparing all the food – puddings as well as meats and salads, arranging prizes for a raffle, putting up gazebos, making the garden immaculate, changing the date because of a terrible weather forecast – and then giving us all a really lovely time in sunshine and a howling gale. Very many thanks to our friends who did this for DPAG.
How do you raise £1,200 in one year?
By being the Mayor and Mayoress of Dorchester and holding loads of exciting and colourful events, which raised enough to give £1,200 to each of four chosen charities of the year, plus another £1,000 divided amongst an extra four. Thank you so much to Tim and Anita Harries for being so generous to DPAG.
