On Saturday after lunch, there will be a sale and a raffle. We welcome any donations to the sale be the books you want to get rid of or other chalet school themed goodies. Higher value items will be raffled and all proceeds will go to charity. Caroline (of Encore books) will also be running her usual book store.

We will also be having the usual table filled with cake for people to nibble on during the day - all contributions are welcome.

I'm also going to put a post in the Gathering forum with various contact details and addresses.

If anyone has anyone to add to the list, feel free to comment below!

Everyone:

Donations to the sale/raffle
Money to pay the balance of the gather cost (TBC later this week)
Money for the sale/raffle/Caroline's books
Cake and/or booze contributions for K&K and cocktails on Saturday.

Weekend girls:

Any spare newspapers/magazines
Clothes, toiletries etc.
Sleeping bag
Pillow if wanted.
Sheet to cover mattress if wanted.
Towel
Ear plugs if you want them

Please can I make my usual plea for someone to bring a stick blender and an electric handwhisk.
Thanks

An enquiry from a new girl to such gathers - how does the sale work? Are we donating the books we bring so that the proceeds also go to charity? Not just the raffle proceeds? I couldn't work out whether this sentence "Higher value items will be raffled and all proceeds will go to charity." also referred back to the previous sentence and thus to items of less value that are not being raffled although I presume that it does?

In other words this is not the place to sell books I am hoping will swell my pension fund? :?

Normally the sale and raffle is made up of donated items with proceeds to charity. If you want to sell something privately, that's okay but obviously the items will have to be separate so people don't get confused.

I shall attempt to remember mine - I just need to not leave work without it as it's living there currently!

I'll bring mine too, in case Nell forgets/two is better than one anyway! It's not very big - three mugs at best - but it'll do.

Do you need proper coffee brought as well?

No, there's proper and instant coffee on the shopping list. So Mr Sainsbury should be bringing me some.
