Fun at Goodwood

Chris, Bec and their beautiful daughter Heidi sent us these great photographs of their day at The Goodwood Revival in September. Chris was the successful bidder in the auction at our annual ball last December.

Our thanks go to Paul Pike for donations the tickets and to The Dormer family for taking part in the auction. We are pleased that you had such a great day!

Gin Experience

14100503_10210378060426815_1165630190180257296_nIan McCulloch one of our trustees hosted a great evening last Saturday 3rd September at his gin distillery at The Silent Pool.

We learned how the gin is made and how they came up with the great blend giving the Silent Pool gin it’s lovely taste. We were greeted with a G&T in one of their beautiful glasses and after the tour were then invited to sample some of the other products that they are making too.

Unfortunately the sun didn’t shine and the rain fell down in torrents but that didn’t spoil the evening at all. I think I can speak for all those that attended that we had a great time, learnt a lot and for me personally I had my first Gin and tonic and loved it!

If you are in the Shere/ Albury area do pop in, it is well worth a visit. Take your money with you though as you won’t be able to resist a purchase or two!

Angela’s Isle of Wight Challenge

20160430_124445_resized_1Our good friend Angela carried out an intense walking challenge around the Isle of Wight. Here’s her story of the day:

Despite numerous miles in training walks, purchase of all required gear, strapping of feet, the consumption of many pain killers and the benefits of having a great support team with us in the IOW I didn’t finish the challenge. My hips eventually got the better of me and cramp eventually ended it for me after 46kms and 12 hours of walking. I feel desperately disappointed not to have got further but glad that I at least tried. I’ve made new friends whilst doing the challenge, seen parts of Kent during training walks that I’ve never seen before (and in some cases don’t want to see again) and been to the IOW, which was a first for me. We were lucky with the weather apart from the hail storm on the afternoon of the first day when we sheltered in a hay barn. Most important of all over £1,200 was raised for Emma’s Bubble Trust which is fantastic and I thank you all again for your wonderful support.

For my part I have yet to undertake anything longer than a stroll around the village green with the dog, my walking boots are out of sight and will remain so until I have all my toe nails back and my hips are not a permanent reminder of the challenge!!

Thanks once again to each any everyone of you, its been really humbling to have had your support.

Cheers,
Ax

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

EBT Ball 2015It’s been another fantastic year for all of us at Emma’s Bubble Trust. I would like to thank you for support and for making Emma’s Ball such a fantastic night. I hope that many of you enjoyed the evening, we certainly did and we managed to raised £4130, which is amazing as it allows us to cover the costs of the flat in Sutton for about 6 months!
At Emma’s Ball there’s a few people that we would like to thank. Firstly all of Emma’s Army and the Events Committee for help on the day of the ball and throughout the year. Without your dedication and hard work, we wouldn’t be able to be as successful as we are. Secondly a massive thanks to David Morgan, our amazing Master of Ceremonies, who comes out of retirement for us every year to host us. The job that you do is superb and really ensures that everyone has a fantastic time! Thirdly many thanks to the team at PartyTime Entertainment Limited who provided a superb night of entertainment and even auctioned off their services at the end of the night, which raised us another £460, which all comes straight to us!
I have included a link to the photographer in case you would like to order any photos. I know that a lot of people have asked for the link as they had intended to buy their photos but time ran out! The evening seemed to finish too soon! http://www.greateventphotography.com.
Finally on behalf of everyone involved with EBT and anyone that we haven’t thanked here, we would like to say thank you and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year.

Ladies High Tea

A lovely afternoon was spent on Epsom Downs on Sunday 20th September thanks to Krystal Events who organized a Ladies High Tea.

The sun was shining as we had a glass or two of presecco on the terrace looking over the racecourse. We then enjoyed a first class afternoon tea while being entertained by a fashion Show put on by Savanah’s Boutique and were then serenaded by James Dyer. There was even a chance for some retail therapy as we wondered around various retail stalls selling such lovely things.

A huge thank you to Justine and Jan for organising the event, to The Spaghetti Tree of Walton on the Hill for providing the prosecco, to Leaders for sponsoring the music and most importantly to all the ladies that came and supported us!

We would also like to thank Charlie Brown Hair Salons and to the students of South Thames College for their time making the models of the fashion show look so gorgeous.

Chris McGaw and his epic climbs

11846606_10155905745500514_4616858983453697063_nOur good and crazy cyclist friend Chris McGaw, is off again for another of his epic rides in his trusty moth eaten Emma’s Bubble Trust t-shirt (his words not ours).

Here’s the description of the ride from the man himself:

It’s basically the East to West route from Lowestoft to Ardnamurchan Lighthouse but with a few killer hills thrown in for good measure (taken from Simon Warren’s books).

And here’s the itinerary:

Day 1 – Ness Point to Leadenham
Day 2 – Leadenham to Grains Bar via Riber (32) and Winnats Pass (33)
Day 3 – Grains Bar to St Johns Chapel via Mytholm Steeps (139), Park Rash (45) and Buttertubs Pass (49)
Day 4 – St John’s Chapel to Cumnock via Killhope Cross (185) and Mennock Pass (63)
Day 5 – Cumnock to Oban
Day 6 – Oban to Corrachadh Mòr via Bealach Feith Nan Laogh (166)
Day 7 – Corrachadh Mòr to TBC via Rest and Be Thankful (68)
Day 8 – TBC to Glasgow via Bealach Maim (163)

The numbers in brackets refer to the 10 hills taken from the book (and its sequel). You can see where they are if you like here:https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer

Actual cycle starts Saturday morning and all being well, I should be at the Lighthouse next Thursday afternoon (20th Aug). I then have to cycle back to Glasgow via another couple of hills to catch a train home…

A bit nervous about this one. I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew!

So everyone can you please please please give Chris a bit of a spur on and sponsor by going to his JustGiving page here.
