Before people arrived, we got an email alert from Hubbub about a new pledge. Our classmate Kallen donated £150 to show his support for our project! It's not easy to express how touched we were by this, without seeming insincere. I'm not exaggerating when I say that we were speechless, and had to blink back tears to continue with quiz prep. This vote of confidence was exactly what we needed. Thank you Kallen.

Raffle donations came from Tunnocks, Sophie Daw of LyonDaw Jewellery, Jackie from Inner Peace Beauty, and generous friends and family.
We learned a lot from the night, and have plenty of ideas to make an event like this run a bit more smoothly. But overall, we're so happy with how it went and we hope everyone had as much fun as we did.
We raised a grand total of... drumroll... £400.55!
That nudges us a bit closer to our fundraising goal, but we still have a long way to go. If you want to support our project, but are unable to come along to one of our events, don't forget that you can donate via PayPal or Swipe on our Hubbub page.
