December 22nd, Christmas week! I have applied for a street licence from Exeter City Council to carry out a fund raising campaign on the High Street. The application has been successful and we have been issued with a Street Collectors Licence. Both the Pan and the FJR will be on the High Street with as much help as we can muster. Can you help?

This will be days before the arrival of the Big Man and I'm thinking he should be riding down the High Street in his special outfit on a blood bike!!! Any volunteers, only fatties with white beards and advanced riding qualifications need apply!! LOL .... fantastic - I can see the pictures already! And the news headlines.

This event is perfect for partners to get involved. We will have buckets and collecting cans at the ready. We need to organise the leaflets and I'll try and sort that this week. Also, I have also organised DFW to get into the Christmas Fayre at Westpoint Arena in Exeter. 30,000 visitors are expected at this event which lasts 3 days.

Again, every volunteer; not just the riders, needs to get involved with this one. Ideally, everyone should only have to do 4-5hrs, with at least 4 people on each 'shift'. Please log on to the calendar and put your name down if you can help, along with anyone else (Partners, Friends etc) who you wish to volunteer.

Please remember to get your friends and family to register. The Fayre is a massive opportunity for a company to gain some publicity. What I would like to see is a company donating a raffle prize, (such as a flat screen tv for example) in return for us putting their details on our stand. Any ideas? I was thinking Makro maybe.

We also need to consider the weather and the fact that we are outside. Anyone got a decent sturdy gazebo that would keep the bike and our heads dry in a worse case scenario? Also, I would love to hear any suggestions from you all.

Many thanks
Speak soon
