In case any UK based people fancy having a few drinks to raise money for a good cause... TNT Magazine is arranging a fundraiser event with proceeds to go to the Premier's Flood fund, helping food victims here in Australia. The event is in Shepherds Bush. Tickets are only a few quid.
Guest posted a topic in VictoriaCalling anyone in the Berwick area who fancy a night out this Sunday 25th April. Rob is one of our fellow Poms who moved to Melbourne in Sept 2008. Rob is an altogether fab guy, always happy and sociable and a real gent. Rob works as the bar manager in the Lava lounge and before this worked at No 81. Unfortunatley Rob had a very bad accident two weeks ago and has sustained brain and facial injuries, as well as a broken pelvis. He is currently in the Royal Melbourne having undergone brain surgery. He will be undergoing surgery on his skull soon and will need to undergo extensive rehabilitation over the coming months. A fundraiser is being held to assist with the rehab costs. This is being orgainised by Rob's boss at the Lava Lounge, and will take place at the Lava Lounge in Berwick Town Centre on Sunday 25th April 9pm to 1.00am. Entry is $10 with a raffle also being held. Entry fees and half of the nights takings will be donated to the fundraiser. If you live in the area, please go along and support this fundraising event. I am sure that when he is better, Rob would be more than happy to say thanks to every one of you!!! Thanks Guys.:smile:
This is a copy of a post from Gary in Britvics. There was great support from PIO at last meet so hopefully a few can come along to this. "I propose that we all get together on sunday the 1st of march at Mornington park,and hold a fundraising day,hopefully in conjunction with Poms in OZ. I only have rough ideas just now,but what I would like to achieve is have some activities on that would give us the ability to raise some cash. Ideas so far,all are open to debate (and please please please add to this list if you can think of anything.) Sausage sizzle/BBQ or whatever you want to call it.My intentions is to phone around some places like Tasman Meats are try and get them to give up some burgers/snarlers for the cause.We can charge for individual items on the day,or so much per head and all you can eat. Raffle - For a raffle we need prizes.I'm hoping that some of you out there with your own business,or others who have some clout in their line of work,could generate some of these.Even if you know some local shop owners who would be sympathetic to the cause and would like to contribute then that would be great. Cheesy CD lucky dip - Ive put this one on the other post,and I reckon it would be a good laugh and generate some dosh aswell.Everyone gives up an unwanted,rarely played or down right embarrasing CD,wraps it with their BV name on it,and drops it into the lucky dip box.Its then $10 (or whatever) to pick a CD out of the box,and have a good laugh at other people's cheese. Thats the three I have in mind.Maybe something for the kids like face painting would be good,or some kiddy game with a prize. How about a friendly match of some sport,Britvics vs Poms in OZ ? Might be a great way to entice the PIO guys n gals to make it down. Now,I cant and wouldnt want to even attempt to try and organise this myself.Any volunteers for a comittee of sorts ? We can then delegate the tasks out. I really hope this is a success,how good would it be if we could hand over $ XXX to the appeal from the Brits living in Victoria ? Just a last bit on the date,which ofcourse is open to debate aswell.I think we would need the time up to the first to get the above and whatever else you come up with organised. So just like a normal BV meet,Bordy will pin this later on and stick your names down.Please,as much as you can,try and put off whatever you can on that day to attend.Stick on the news any night at six this week and you'll know how much these poor people need as much help as they can get."
