Well, here we are in all our glory! What a giggle we had this afternoon! At very short notice, four of us (Sophie, me, Ruth and Karen) and Bella one of our photographers, braved the rain showers and threw our tops off by the Winterslow sign in Livery Road as a practice run and to have something to show potential sponsors. Luckily the normally busy road was clear and there was no traffic at all, so no accidents, thank goodness!
There has been so much going on behind the scenes in the last few weeks. We have so far secured over £1,000 of sponsorship from local businesses, and that's without even having sent out any letters yet!
Thank you to our sponsors so far - Winterslow Central Stores, Complex Services, Just Jayne, NJ Rowe Insurance, Hilltop Diner, Junipers B&B, LED Synergy, Mr & Mrs Gates, Stannah Stairlifts, Ray Hunt 4x4, and Fjordling Smokehouses.
Sara has met with Dave Cates the Director of the Stars Appeal at Salisbury Hospital and talked with some of the breast care nurses, who are all thrilled and so very grateful for what we are doing. Our selected printers, Salisbury Printing, have very generously quoted an exceptionally low price for producing the calendars, which will mean that our overheads will be kept to an absolute minimum, particularly as our photographers, Mandy Milford from Hilltop Studios and Kate Inman-Meron have offered their services free of charge.
We have plenty of ideas for well known venues in Salisbury, but will keep you guessing as to where we will be .... But every so often we'll give you a clue for each month. So, for February, think hearts, Valentine's Day, romance, four poster bed and ruffled sheets .......
If any of our readers have any ideas of their own for particular shots, or could recommend a potential sponsor or a certain venue in the Salisbury area, please do let us know, either via this blog or by contacting me direct on firstname.lastname@example.org
