To bring a team to join in the fun for just 10 euros each (40 euros per team), just fill in the online form here.

Barbeque

Hamlet Brick

It’s easy to have an idea, in this case “let’s have a BBQ/Fete as part of the Warehouse Fundraising Project”.  The reality only comes about because a lot of people put in a lot of work to make things happen.  Blannaid Naghten and Colma O’Luanaigh organised the day for us and many others baked, cooked, prepared food and donated prizes and saleable goods.  A donkey was drawn, a treasure map painted, a bottle stall wheel made, the buzz-buzz game created…  All we needed was great weather and for lots of people to turn up.

Well, we had both. The BBQers, drink sellers and small army of stall holders were kept busy all afternoon with about 150 people coming through the gates that afternoon.  Also, huge thanks to those who topped and tailed our day by setting up and clearing away.

The aim had been to bring together a group of people who were prepared to give time and money to a common cause, the Warehouse.  It ended up being far more than that, with people catching up with friends they hadn’t seen for a while, a chance to sit in the sun and eat together, have fun playing games and spend time browsing through books.

It was a lovely way to kick-start the campaign.

Thank you all!

Quiz results

Hamlet Brick

First of all: huge thanks to all who participated!

Secondly: megathanks to Graham Andrews and Conrad Toft for putting the questions together, helping with the organisation and being quiz masters on the night.

The team I was on, Clueless, suffered immensely due to me being, yes, mostly clueless. 

CONGRATULATIONS though to winners THE BARD’S BEST who led from the start.  Hats off to you! Thanks to the entry fee and sales of mugs and brownies, we raised approximately €580 for the Warehouse Project, which is pretty good going. We aim to hold another quiz night early next year, so watch this space! (I’ll aim to get more than 3 answers next time).

Once again – thanks!
