Yesterday’s Halloween Coffee Morning brought an end to an amazing month of fundraising for Jamie’s Journey, here at Million Dollar Fitness.
Over October we had a whole bunch of stuff going on:
Over 40 of us climbed Errigal.
Total raised £1455.
Pledge My Pounds
The Million Dollar girls set weight loss targets for themselves and pledged to lose X number of pounds or pay a forfeit. I also pledged to donate £1 for every pound lost.
Total raised so far £690 (more forfeits still to be collected).
Over 20 prizes were donated by local businesses.
Total raised £1455.
Halloween Coffee Morning.

I’ve seen some amazing things in my years of travelling around the world but NEVER have I experienced anything like the overwhelming support shown here in this community. Average folk from all walks of life, pulling together to help others less fortunate. Everybody has their struggles and we all deal with things differently but one act of kindness no matter how small can make a huge impact on another person’s life.
Meeting Jamie, a 16 year old boy who’s battled Cancer twice has really put my own things into perspective and I have to say I’ve learned an important lesson from all of this – Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Have you got any pumpkins left over ?
Have you ever juiced a pumpkin before?
They work well with carrots, sweet potatoes, citrus fruits, pineapple, mango, apples, pears, squash, zucch kale, spinach and beets and a fab source of B-complex vitamins, vitamins A, C and E, carotenoids (that’s where the orange colour comes from), calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, zinc and fibre.
