Pixels Against Cancer 16.09.2018
The first event was Pixels Against Cancer which was an afternoon/evening of Retro Video Gaming fun at The Waverley Pub, Aldwick, Bognor Regis.
This event was a fun packed one with 13 different play stations available with a few hundred people turning up to help raise money and awareness. Children and adults of all ages and abilities turned out at this event.
As well as gameplay the event held a raffle full of wonderful prizes from a Meal for two to a Gaming Mouse.
There was a retro-themed cake stall, with cakes being donated by family, friend, and local businesses.
Kirsty O’Connor baked especially for this event a cake in the shape of an arcade machine which was won in a Guess How Many Pixels in Pac Man competition.
First of its kind in Bognor, the Waverley and My Special Event deemed the event as a major success and are hoping that this idea will become more of a regular thing in 2019 and have many plans in the pipeline so watch this space……
Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off Coffee Morning 30.09.2018
The next event My Special Event held was two weeks later. The venue this time was Sandra Louisa’s Art & Music Studio in Essex Road, Bognor Regis.
This event was a Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off Coffee Morning and Art Exhibition.
Held in the morning Zoe Pniewski of My Special Event and Sandra Louisa t/a Art + Music, had a cake sale with a Best Cake Competition judged by local Councillor Matt Stanley.
There was a Guess the Weight of the Cake competition too and a raffle overall raising over £300 for Cancer Research UK.
There was so much fun to be had at this event it even went past the 1 pm deadline.
Raising a lot for Charity
Overall between the two events, £850.81 was raised by My Special Event, Jan Pniewski and Sandra Louisa for Cancer Research UK.
Thanks for all your help and looking to the Future
It is hoped that there will be many more of these events in the future and My Special Event would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those involved behind the scenes, on the actual event days and her friends and family for all their support.
