Well, another Dowerin Field Days done and dusted.
Well I save the best for last and broke out my SHOT GUN WEDDING DREES for the occasion of THE END OF FROCKTOBER!!!
What a ride it has been!
It took 3 and a half hours to walk the main street of Merredin and I am thrilled to say that today alone, the town of Merredin raised $426!!!!!
I am so humbled by how amazing and generous the people in my little town are. I am sure many of them have been questioning my sanity throughout the whole month, see the look on this lady’s face…….
Here is my day…..
Thank you Two Dogs!
Thank you Merredin Newsagency
Thank you Super IGA
Thank you Girls from The Cutting Room
Rest stop at The Cummins Theatre where I am planning to hold a spectacular Launch and cocktail party next year!!
hahahaha, adjusting some bits and getting some air, oh Mum, you nearly got my knickers!
My Flower Girl have a bit of fun at Atkinsons of Merredin, YAY colouring table!
Thank you Target
Thank you Toy shop
Thank you to all the banks in town
Thank you Christina’s Cottage (I have stopped drooling over your wares long enough to take some pics)
Thank you Australia Post
Thank you Information centre
Thank you so much Merredin Wheattbelt Mercury for following me through this crazy event
And a big thankyou to all who donated and saw me in the street and didn’t call the ‘looney van’ on me, This experience has made me grow, again, imagine what I can do now after stepping out of my comfort zone for the whole month. How am I going to top this next year??? …..don’t be silly, of course I already have plans for next year – you ALL may be involved!!!!!
So, online we raised, together $740
And today alone, you all generously helped me raise $426
I am so amazed by you all!!
And I believe that all of us FROCKTOBIANS have surpassed the $250,000 mark all together, that is astounding!! Getting us closer to some better early detection for ovarian cancer and closer to eradicating this awful disease.
Tomorrow, some of the money will go to the cause too, so COME AND JOIN ME FOR LUNCH TOMORROW!!! details HERE, bring your friends and your kids (there is a lolly buffet!!! and so many awesome little shops set up just for you)
I did do a little vlog and I will put it up with tomorrows finale blog post with the grand total you awesome people have helped me raise!
PS. if you missed me today you can still donate here
Today I had to get a few things for the pantry – I always forget things even though I write a list.
Supa IGA has been my local grocery store for many many years, They cater for all of my whims, they just got in some coconut oil for me. They have had several names but the same friendly attitude and often I have to allow more time in my shopping just to get through all of the conversations I have with people in here, Merredin really is MY town, I love all the people here!
So I donned my first Dowerin Field Days wearable art dress and set off to town…….
Aunty Leah makes it all better with chocky frogs!!
I don’t think any more needs to be said hahahaha
Needless to say, there was a lot of different reactions, the most amusing was when they just wouldn’t look at me “if I don’t acknowledge her, then I am not seeing what I think I am seeing” hahahaha
This shopping experience took a lot less time than usual because people just didn’t know how to react to my outfit
Do you think it was too much??? hahahahaha
Love Kirsty xx
