Another bag pack… this time at Morrison’s Balby.  After a few hitches/disappointments, the day got much better as it progressed.  I am truly grateful to ALL who helped today, including my 11 year old grandson Josh 😀  June 24 amount

This means it’s time to aim higher again …. I’ve raised the target to £4,500. With one more Bag Pack to come, and a few sponsored swims, I am really hoping to reach this total by the end of July.

I met some lovely people today, who were genuinely interested in my swim and The Hearing Fund UK.  I thank you for your interest, especially if the leaflet has led you to visit this blog for the first time.

I’m signing off for the night feeling very tired after being on my feet for 9 hours, but so grateful for the support of so many today. I honestly couldn’t have done this without you!  I can now look forward to a special day tomorrow with my dear friend Carol or ‘Friend Up North’ as she calls herself on her comments on here. 😉 We are off to Leeds to see the one and only Merrill Osmond perform, with a Meet and Greet and an Afternoon Tea thrown in for good measure! Bring it on!

Woe! The visits to my blog have gone a little crazy!! I was hoping to reach 4,000 views by the end of June but look what happened in the past few hours!!  Views and visitors 19 June

The numbers are increasing hour by hour, which is really exciting to me, because the more people read about this, the more awareness there is for The Hearing Fund UK.

The Visitors have gone up dramatically too. The Visitors number represents 2,018 different people who have clicked on this WordPress link!  Hello to anyone who is new to these pages!! I think there may be quite a few from the poster leaflets we gave out at Tesco Extra on Friday, so thank you for coming to take a look.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

Another exciting thing I noticed is that in the past 24 hours, I have had visits from El Salvador, Colombia and Somalia for the first time!  Greetings from a Yorkshire town in England called Doncaster!! 🙂  Please look us up on Google Maps… it’s a great place to live!

I love the fact that WordPress show how many people have viewed  daily, and show a running total….

Perhaps I should do a Top 10 on a Sunday night, with New Entries!!! haha 😀

As I sit and prepare the week ahead, I am excited that this coming Friday we have another Bag Pack at Morrison’s Superstore in Balby, Doncaster.  The Community Fundraiser who represents the Store, Martine, is an absolute treasure. If we can manage to raise another £400 there, we will be flying past the £3,500 target!! 😀 😀

Next weekend I will also have the pleasure of seeing the gorgeous Merrill Osmond with friends at Leeds, so along with all the swimming and fundraising, it’s going to be a hectic week ahead.

Finally, in the pipeline are a few Swim a Mile with Me group swims coming up too. If you are interested in swimming with me, whether it be here, or anywhere else, I do have an official sponsor form.  Please just let me know if you would like to join in. It would be great to see you!
