Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

I haven't forgotten, just having issues with a certain garage regarding a certain bill.

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

The money collected was a little disappointing so we may have to get creative with how we raise more. To be fair though the NEC is an expensive place to visit and we shouldn't be surprised that people didn't want to put money in our buckets. We did get a lot of exposure for Pinky from it though, loads of people had their photo taken next to it, most were tongue in cheek .

Well done to Gavin for getting the press interested, . Pinky is in 'Classic car weekly' this week, a picture and a paragraph as part of a piece previewing the show. We got two copies and Barbara had them autographed by the Wheeler Dealer guys on the relevent page, something else to display with it's trophy when it goes on tour next year .

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

Hi Everyone. We are having a few issues with electronic payments - a potential solution is being checked - watch this space.

If anyone has tried to make a payment already please let me know - it may have bounced back to you

This is why I haven't replied to the recent pm's - no point giving you duff information..............

Many thanks for your help Stephen ( @homeward )

Your payment came through at the third attempt.

@homeward now achieves the first Pinky Merit for services rendered and is allowed to use the designation "PM" after his name

Updated instructions will be going out to everyone soon, so please try again if your first automated payment bounced.

I am going to suggest that Stephen's idea of sending an odd amount is a good one too. The payments come through just showing bank credit, so as we are expecting loads (I wish ) of 50 donations, maybe others could do the same - 50.11, 50.07, or whatever. Please just let me know when your payment has gone though, as I need to try to work out who's paid

Thanks for bearing with us

Edit: now replied to all the pm's I think - unless you know better...... Going for a lie down in a darkened room now!!

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to confirm that everyone who originally pledged to buy Pinky has actually donated. Sorry for the delayed update, but I was busy with work stuff in January.

Many thanks to everyone below who followed through on their promises. I know some of you weren't exactly flush, which makes it even more of a thank you.

The original sum pledged to buy Pinky was 400, and by default you also got a 50 donation from me as I needed 50 to open the account!

So in no particular order........ Yes ok, it's in Alfa order


Aston Martin (Adam) - 50.55
Bougainvillea Rosso (Sheldon) - 50.55
cheekylittlescamp (John) - 50.67
Dragon Man (John) - 50.00
firstcar-Y10 (Andrew) - 50.00
Freebo (John) - 50.13
homeward (Stephen) - 50.52
leonsdada (Aurelio) - 50.05
Palio (Gavin) - 50.00

Thanks Dragon Man, homeward, panda panda, VmanC thanked for this post

Dragon Man (John) - 50.00

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

Just received a cheque from Easy Fundraising - sorry it's a bit blurry but I tried to take a photo & can't really be bothered to scan it properly! The dead Panda is just a keyring covering my address before anyone comes up with more sinister theories.....



I really would encourage everyone to sign up to this. The cheque is for 17.89 and is nearly all from yours truly & Vernon - lots of it is from Ebay parts purchases (oops!!), there is a significant amount from my using the Easy Search link instead of Goofle [sic ], plus bits from Screwfix/Amazon, etc.

It really is money for nothing & this could be a useful source of funds if everyone joined in.

The actual total raised so far is 28.05, if we were all using it we could have over 100 now, as Gavin says, just from doing nothing!

Re: Pinky The Panda Fundraising Thread

Can you run through how we do it again please, I have a new computer and haven't set it up again on this pc, sorry

*hangs head**shame face*

Edit:

Went to post #1 and followed the instructions, easy

I've set Pinky's search site as my home page too.

Some browsers support a nifty plug in to check who makes donations too as well as special deals, added that to chrome

If I donate a fiver can I have another Pinky sticker please?
