Last week I found out that our local YMCA branch are auctioning some pretty cool stuff. There’s a whole bunch of activities and items being auctioned in a very good cause – their Open Door project which arranges supported lodgings for homeless teenagers. You can bid for
- Dinner and round of golf with West Bromwich Albion legend Cyrille Regis
- Tickets to a West Bromwich football match (vs Stoke or vs Tottenham Hotspur)
- Free personal training or a taster Scuba diving session
- A family day out at Conkers or West Midlands Safari Park
- Or lots of other stuff
There is also a charity ball this Saturday night at The Hawthorns (the West Brom football ground) to celebrate 5 years of Open Door, and to raise money for this brilliant scheme. There are still a few tickets left for a great night out to support Open Door. The Vicar and I have been invited too and will be there. It’s our first night out like this in I can’t remember how long. I shall have to do a serious shoe audit this week to check if I have anything that I can actually dance in. Maybe see you there?
