Never really covers how I feel to be honest and there are a few to be said this week.
Did you see the total !!!
... I know I had to recount a few times to confirm it
I'm overwhelmed and still in awe at how fabulous this year's ball was.
The compliments and comments about how smooth, slick and professional the night was is a massive compliment to Kieron Armstrong and Giant Events Management, despite his busy schedule Kieron always puts his all into this for us.
I never dare set us a target for the night preferring just to enjoy what a fabulous night it is and the money raised is fantastic regardless but this year was important and by eck we smashed it out of the ball park Mr Armstrong !!!
Unbelievably with our other fundraisers this year plus the JustGiving Teams we are at the half way mark, I could never have dreamed we could have got to £50,000 and still have 7 months to go. I'm starting to believe we can do this !!!
I'm not sure who said Yorkshire Folk are tight but they most definitely aren't I have proof :-)
Someone kindly recorded my very nervous and Yorkshire sounding speech
