CAADA raises £800 for IDVA training place

I just wanted to thank everyone who worked so hard and with such creativity to help us raise £800 last week.  As you know this will go towards subsidizing an IDVA to attend the CAT course.  There is a long list- I think that the ‘awesometer’ has to be headed by Keziah, who, with her own inimitable charm, quietly got everyone working away on this.  There was no escape!  Then the bakers, bazaar-stallhandlers, bookmakers (literary not gambling variety), and quizmasters (can you be a quiz mistress?) who provided sustenance, style, intellectual stimulation and huge good fun during the week.  It gave me a new insight into some unexpected gifts of my colleagues, not to mention their taste in headgear and facial hair!!!  The photos tell it all….. I am sure that everyone will agree that we deserved our dose of fun- it did me so much good (and not just because we won the quiz…)
