Hope4China'sChildren'sDay 2012

This seems to be the Year of the Panda here in Scotland! ( No Dragons here!)
And so our Celebrations for Children's Day naturally  focussed on Pandas.

We had Pandamonium at Buckhaven High School on Wednesday.....

                                                                Thanks Pauline!

                                                The wonderful Cooks in Home Economics
                                                          And the yummy noodles!

Guess how many balloons in the Panda Car to win a Panda Bear?
How many do you think????

All these events together helped us to raise over £180 which will help Buckhaven High School to support one girl to school

And then on Saturday 2nd June - Panda Mania at St Margaret's Church, Dunfermline

                                     A lovely Panda Welcome from Ian with his ice-cream cones
                                  More goodies on Sale with the Jubilee Helpers in the background!
                                                Marion busy with Panda Crafts
                                      And a lovely friend "getting in the spirit" of Panda Mania !
                                                             Families had fun :-)
                                                            Our token Jubileeism!
                                                                 Happy Shoppers
Touch Primary children each designed a Panda Card to send to Guangxi Girls in China.
They did an amazing job..and it was so hard to pick a winner?
The winning card has won a family ticket to Edinburgh Zoo to see the real Pandas!
( can't share the winning card or name yet, as we have still to share the news at Touch Primary!)
                    Irene & June did a wonderful job of creating these fantastic Panda Biscuits
and this brilliant Panda Cake which is far too good to eat?

Thanks too to Wiseman dairies for donating Panda Milk to go with the biscuits!!!!!

All of this Pandamania has raised around £380

and last, but not least......

 Frank and Greenie's Sponsored Silence and Fast

Raising around £600!!!!!!!!!!
It's amazing what some people were prepared to pay to keep them quiet:-)

So all in all we have had lots of fun, celebrated with some amazing children in Scotland, 
worked together with Buckhaven High School, Touch Primary School, Wiseman's Dairies, friends of amazing talents
Raised over £1200 to help some pretty special children in China!
Sounds like another Win/Win to me?

And just wait til you see what Matthew and the team were getting up to in Nanning at the same time?
