    Last year we raised £10,000 for Victoria School, to buy them an Omivista Projection System. I went there last week for what I thought was the usual cheque presentation for local press, however it turned out to be something a bit different.

    Instead they made a presentation to me which included (to my profound embarrassment) a room with all the pupils and teachers and a presentation to me. They had bought me a big garden spring plant display, bottle of wine and best of all made a framed montage showing the kids using the Omivista (see below). I explained it wasn't so much me as all the generous members here and on TamingTheSaxophone so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all and especially to @Jeanette for her apparently untiring dedication to sorting the Yardsale fees and fundraising in general, plus the great job done by all the mods (thanklessly) and all the members who contribute whether financially or otherwise.

    I also have a video they sent which I will share as soon as I get it on Youtube.
