Event: Merry Christmas! On Saturday 30 November I attended the Definition of Size Art Fundraiser, hosted by my good friend Anita Bellamy (of Plus Confidence in You) (see Part 1 here). It was a fantastic event! As a supporter/volunteer for the day I arrived early and helped to set up and generally flitted about throughout the day, checking people in (all technical like) and selling raffle tickets along with the other volunteers. Speaking of the raffle, there were so many fantastic prizes! Thank you to everyone that donated items and bought tickets, it gave a huge boost to the fundraising. I bought some tickets myself and was very lucky to win a couple of items, though sadly not any of the clothing prizes I was lusting after! I'm not sure how much we raised in total, but I was personally overwhelmed by people's generosity.

There are too many people to thank so I won't start the individual thank you's except to the ladies that kept me sane on the day, you know who you are!
I am looking forward to meeting with Anita and the other volunteers early in the New Year to start planning the main exhibition.
