In one of the most embarrassing farces of my life, I prepared lots of cakes, took the day off work, hosted a coffee morning in aid of the Alzheimer's Society and ONE person turned up!
And he was in his 80s...Never mind. Will chalk that up to experience. At least he and I had a nice chat. But we didn't raise much money. Or any in fact.
Moving swiftly on, the bric-a-brac stall at my coffee morning went in its entirety the next day to the YMCA shop...prompting me to nearly defriend a FB friend who raised £200 at her fundraising coffee morning!
