The tally is done and we raised $700 from the Lions Santa Sleigh fundraiser. It was a great opportunity for the kids to run around the neighbourhood and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Speaking on behalf of my kids, who participated in at least 3 nights of cake sales, they had a great time, they learned some quick maths and they were able to have a really positive impact on a number of people who I felt absolutely welcomed the opportunity to have a visit with the kids whilst trying to organise how to pay for their cakes. In one instance Skye had to work through an $18 cake sale that was mostly 20 cent and 10 cent coins. Lots of fun for her.
We have been invited to participate again next year and it is definitely my recommendation to the club that we assist the Lions in their event.
