We just had to highlight a recent Free Range Friday held by the wonderful Yvonne Brunotte – you’ll understand why when you see the gorgeous photos.
Yvonne put on a Royal-Tea and Chari-Tea in her home city of Hamburg to coincide with the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, and raised £350 for the BHWT!
She came up with some novel ideas for her party including a teapot tombola and awards for the best dressed guest.
Yvonne’s house was decorated to perfection – this Union Jack bunting, perfectly mowed lawns and cardboard Corgie cut-outs – even the dogs were dressed up with neckerchiefs!
She said: ” Personally, I am overwhelmed and deeply moved by this success, even more so as fundraising in general, but private fundraising in particular doesn’t have a history and tradition in Germany at all and is still widely unknown.
“Especially things like tombolas or raffles at private events are completely uncommon and I thought it to be quite a risk to introduce this additional fundraising tool, but it was a huge success.
“My personal sense of achievement is not only about the raised money, but more about the fact I have created much more awareness and have inspired and motivated many people to fundraise themselves.”
Thank you so much Yvonne!
