One day to go!!

Dear Friends, Colleagues & Trouble Aficionados

We have seen incredible support for our annual fundraiser in this most unusual year.

So far, we’ve raised about R60 000 (3 300 €) – making this the most successful fundraiser to date!

Thank you to all the amazing people who have made such generous contributions.

This leaves us only about 9% short of our goal: to raise R66 000 by Sunday 6 December (today!)

So, if you were still planning on making a contribution towards Jenny Symons (a.k.a. Trouble) for 2021 – there’s no time like the present!

Due to unforseen circumstances, we’ve had to make some last-minute changes to the Prizes for the Lucky Draw. Unfortunately, the popular home-made cookies are not a safe option this year: my son is currently in quarantine, and though I wanted to take every precaution, it just feels wrong to bake and send cookies under these circumstances (I don’t want to accidently spread more than love & appreciation to our amazing sponsors 🙂 )
I hope you understand. I have also been forced to choose items that can be sent by mail without serious extra cost. And so, this year, the following prizes will be up for grabs:
– home-made “I love TROUBLE” bookmarks
– sets of upcycled home-made Christmas cards
– herbs for making Glühwein (from our favourite local specialty herb shop).

We’ll keep our fingers crossed!
