Lots of patterns Yesterday, Saturday, we had a money raising charity event at the City & Islington Fujian White Crane kung fu club.

The money we raised was for the Claremont Day Centre (aka Claremont Project) which is a day centre here in Islington for old people. Sadly the council has cut their fundings dramatically this year and that's almost where we come in. The thing is that we train kung fu in their building on Monday nights, Wednesday nights and saturday mornings. By having a charity event we could raise money to go towards this charity.

What we did was that we held a competition amongst ourselfs. We're all Dave's students and to enter the competition you had to pay £10 which went towards the charity 100%.

There was also a 1000-punches-sponsorship event. We said to our colleges and friends that we'd throw 1000 punches if they sponsor us with some money. I raised £40 with my collegues at Fry-IT

Below are some pictures from the event:

I hope to be able to report shortly how much we managed to raise but it needs to be summed properly first.
