Nickys Last Wish

A bit merry...
Update posted by nickywish On Dec 15, 2012

A bit merry so please excues the shortness of the update and any spelling mistakes....

Final fundraiser was this evening, raised loads but still left us £343 short of the target to send Nicky and her family on thier last holiday.

I would like to thank all those who have donated prizes, bought reaffle tickets, attended a findraiser, donated prizes or even just watched this fundraiser. You have all helped in one way of the other and without donations we wouldnt have raised the amount we did. Short of the target, yes, but given the time limit we had to do what we did a MASSIVE achievement and one we should all be proud of... going to bed and again thank you.

Having sat down and worked out how much the raffle tickets have made (as the date for selling has now passed), and trying to predict how much the fundraiser on Saturday will make I put us to be about £600 - £800 off what we need to hit the target.

Tottally gutted, was so sure for so long we would hit it, I know we still might but thats a big amount to try and make on top, I know on the plus side to have have raised £4000+ in such a short time should be see as an achievment but I cant help feeling like I have failed.

Having one of thos moments me thinks where I need to get my head up and work out how its going to be sorted.

The morning after.. the morning after!
Update posted by nickywish On Dec 10, 2012

So we held the darts fundraiser on Saturday night and raised just over £500, add that to the total of raffle tickets now sold the target amount need drops yet again to £1394.

From a starting amount needed of £5000 this is a massive achievment and the final fundraiser next weekend will take a further chunk out of it although for the first time the thought of not reaching the target has entered my head. I could be wrong but £1400 in one night when the other two nights combined came to about £1300 has planted the seed in my head that we might not hit the target :-/

I hope we do, we will do all we can, just might not be enough and I feel guilty even thinking those thoughts.. hmm... WE WILL DO IT WE WILL DO IT WE WIL DO IT.

 

*Feel better now :-D

Band Night!
Update posted by nickywish On Dec 02, 2012

** EDIT:

Make sure you read the full article to get photos of last night including the kids band who where amazing!

 

And so it began, the first of 3 fundraisers that I hope will help us reach the target or at least get close :-D

In an upstairs function room at the Legion the first band stepped up, Rosco's Rocks. With the band age ranging from 8 years to 10 I wont lie that I wasnt a bit apprehensive over what we where going to get but boy oh boy was I impressed! 

The four youngsters set the night off in great style, making way for the due known as Hey River and then the final band Two Choices.

A hugely enjoyable night where we raised £750 in a mixture of door tickets, raffle tickets sold and auctioning off a Brighton football shirt.

Total which those of you who have been following from the begining  was £5000 has no dropped to £2,399.. an amazing start, hopefully the next and last two fundraisers will be as productive!

Added some pictures, or just about to of the 3 bands, well worth checking out the kids the band, for ones so small, they sure did an amazing job :-D

The night before!
Update posted by nickywish On Nov 30, 2012

So its 1.30am in the morning and I thought I would give an update at where we are at before the 1st of the 3 organised fundraisers tomorrow night, or should I say tonight (makes note to self to goto sleep after this message :-D)

 

Raffle tickets are going well, really well in fact. When I started the fundraiser we needed £5000 and I thought the task would be a huge hill to climb, it still is but in fairness I didnt think we would raise so much before the fundraisers planned for tonight, next Saturday and then the the last on the 15th.

Being able to bring the total needed down to £3177 is an amazing feeling and a great way to go into the next 3 Saturdays knowing we have nearly raised over £2000 already and more to the point that the balance still needed is only £3000 (laughs at only).

So, now the fun begins and I really hope it pays off, especially with the news tonight that Nicky has been taken into hospital with an infection which whilst I suppose is par for the course and something we all need to get used to it really does bang home for me on a personal scale why I / we are doing this.

Big night tonight, hope we can put a dent in the remaining balance to take the pressure off the darts night next week and then the big family fundraiser on the 15th.. might even treat myself to a beer at the band night tonight if things go well.

Thanks for reading, love to all and Ill update you after the weekend, hopefully bringing the total down some more and maybe even a few pics of the band night.

 

Night all!

A wicked weekend for fundraising, firstly the Lancing Lyons offer to donate £750 towards the total needed due to Jon & Nickys familys involvement with them over the last 20 or so news.. and then more good news on the raffle ticket selling front!!

 

Started about 2 weeks ago needing £5000, already that total is down to £3777

If things carry on like this we will SMASH the target and send Nicky Jon and the kids off on a holiday to remember.

 

On a personal note, it feels good to start getting some money intowards the target ahead of the fundraisers we have planed on the 1st, 8th & 15th of December. Its all well and good saying how I / we are going to raise x amount of money, but as soon as Nicky and Jon found out the pressure of what if we dont hit the target, what if we only reach x amount has been alot more than I thought it would.

 

Still wont be happy until we get to the total needed £5000 (£3777 after you take into acount the money raised off site) but we will get there!

Going to add a lovely picture that was taken this weekend of Nicky and Jon and Jons brothers wedding this weekend.. a lovely pic! :-D

Update 8th November!
Update posted by nickywish On Nov 08, 2012

So far we have raised £135 in selling tickets for a raffle we are holding for friends and family on the 15th of December.. I have lowered the target amount to reflect this and will keep doing so as we raise more money.


A big thank you to those that have donated so far, we WILL meet this target, cant not, not an option, wont let it happen. Even if on the fundraiser on the 15th December I have to lose both my eye brows, shave my head, wax my legs LIVE ON STAGE, we will reach the target although hopefully with a little help from GoGetFunding donations I might just make it through without losing to much hair :-D

Thanks also to GoGetFunding for backing us today and adding us to the featured projects list, its much appreciated and will hopefully help us reach that target of making Nickys Wish come true.

Thanks for reading, should I update this more, should I add pictures videos.. I dont know, leave me a message and tell me what you thnk regardless of it you are able or in a position to donate.

 

Thanks for all your help,

 

Dan.

Raffle tickets and fundraising are going well.. to those that donated here I thank you so much it all counts towards hitting that target as there is no way I can fail. Even if I walk into that last fundraiser on the 15th Decemeber filled with friends and family and have to lose my eye brows, the hair on my head and legs just to get people to get people to put cash in the bucket.. I will raise that money.. failling isnt an option. Also MASSIVE thanks to GoGetFunding for featuring our project and also helping me change the currency from $ to 's. Whilst I am not picky what currency donates in.. it mekes it easier to see what we have raised here and how much else we / I need to raise. Again thank you all so much... Dan.
