Portsmouth Historical Dockyard Part 2

Thursday, 21st May 2009
Fundraising continued today with more tin rattling down at the Docks.  Better weather saw more tourists braving HMS Victory and the Mary Rose Museum and we were once again touched by the public's generous spirit.  School children were plentiful and some even offered up their lunch money though none could be tempted to try out the Trixter XDream today.  Thanks to Melissa in the Historic Dockyard for her support.
Later, the fundraising trio of Scanny, Thorpey and Dan moved to the Royal Marines Museum for a Royal Marines Association Band Concert.  Our thanks go to Chris Newberry nd his team, Sue, Roger and Sandy, for being so accommodating and allowing us access to this event.
Today's efforts, combined with monies raised last Thursday afternoon, gave us a total of £958.23, not bad for a few hours work.  Thank you Portsmouth!
