Hi John

Super idea, there are lots of people offering to help, i'll pass on their names, e.g. leading spin groups, and assisting at the coffee stop. This really links in with the upcoming Christmas season, and the club party that night.

Hi Sinead
You get two free tickets to the raffle ( one extra instead of the scone ! ) ; I really appreciate you getting behind this cause - every penny Focus gets is ring fenced to build a Family apartment in their development in St Johns Lane Dublin 8. The response we have had to date has been so good that I really believe we will make our target by Christmas . Regards John

John,

This is a very worthy cause and one that I am very happy to support. I will be there on the 9th December.

I would love to see as many Orwell members join us on the cycle to Bray. A free coffee and your chance to take one family out of homelessness.

Looking forward to this, thanks Val.
I cycle past a young man living in a tent nearly every day close to where I live. A reminder of how unequal our society is.

Great idea for a great charity.
