Chris Hawes of the 9th Watford posted an interesting article about the importance of fundraising on the 19th July..

He rather pipped me to the post (no pun intended) on this as I had been thinking about a similar blog myself but he does rather seems to have covered all of the aspects.

But slipping into proud parent mode for the last few months the Cub of the house has been planting seeds, potting on and selling the resultant plants at the bottom of our drive way.

And yesterday at the last meeting before the summer holidays he handed his Akela a cheque for £60.00, the profits from the exercise.

Hand on heart it wasn’t pushy parent stuff – He pretty much came up with the scheme on his own.

I hope he decides to keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive and creates enough wealth to keep Mrs। G and myself in the manner we would like to be accustomed to in our dotage.

Update - Nick over at Porthill has just posted a Podcast also on the subject of fundraising. Well worth a listen.


  1. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was conducting a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast due to the fact that I discovered it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your website.
