Just thought I’d give an update on how things are going now that I have 6 weeks to go to the event. I am on few days annual leave so it is best to get this out now as I never will otherwise. I have a few things in the pipeline with regards to fundraising for the Camino walk. Firstly, I have a table quiz organised for the 13th of May in Dublin. I’ve invited work colleagues, Twitter followers, Facebook friends and pretty much everyone I know to come along. It promises to be a great night. It will be the first Table Quiz (or any event) I have organised so it is all new to me. So if you have time on Friday, the 13th May, drop in! Also, I have (along with the brother) set up a GAA Fantasy Football league to commence on May 22nd right through to the end of September. Basically you can pick 7 teams and along the way, you pick up points for every win, goal and points scored, provincial title won and so on. The winner will end up with €200. You don’t need to be a GAA whiz at all to enter. I am in the process of arranging an online payment system, but when I have that arranged we are all ready to go. I really hope to get a good uptake and if popular I can make this into an annual fundraiser. Again, all additional funds go to Aware. Aware have been a charity of choice for the last few years. If you want to find out more about either the GAA Fantasy League or Table Quiz or if you would like to donate for the trek, feel free to message me on Twitter @clearskies or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks. David.
