Hello world!

Hello Everyone,

I’ve finally bitten the bullet and am now in the process of creating this Blog. Any hints & tips and feedback would be gratefully received! I would like to write in PINK ink… but at the time of writing, it’s boring black with an unattractive font! #somuchstilltolearn

Nevertheless – it’s fit for purpose and its purpose is to keep everyone updated with the planning progress of the annual Pink Car Rally.  If you have stumbled upon this Blog and have not previously heard about the Rally, it’s basically a Pink Procession which snakes its way across the beautiful UK countryside, raising awareness of (and funds for) the Little Princess Trust, a charity which gives ‘real hair’ wigs to children (aged 2-18) who have lost their hair, primarily through cancer treatments.  www.pink-car-rally.com

This year, we Pinkies are aiming to raise a collective £10,000 for the charity, through the Pink Car Rally and the Special Pink Raffle (which I officially launched today!)

To anyone planning to participate in some, or all, of the 2012 John O’Groats to Land’s End Pink Car Rally (14th to 19th August) please can you send your Entry Forms to me asap? I need to order T.shirts and Goody Bags, but to do so I really need to know numbers and sizes!! Entry forms can be downloaded from the website http://www.pink-car-rally.com/PDFs/Pink%20Car%20Rally%2012%20Entry%20Form.pdf

If you would like to help with the Rally, the thing I MOST need is publicity, please.  If you’re on Facebook, please share our page www.facebook.com/pinkcarrally if you’re on Twitter, please follow @pinkcarrally and @saligray, tweet about the Rally, and RT out tweets.  If you’re participating in the Rally, please tell your local radio station, newspaper, magazine etc. If you have a Pink Car, you could approach businesses for Sponsorship – for example, you could invite them to pay for your fuel, in exchange for them placing magnetic advertising signs on your vehicle.  If you don’t have a Pink Car, perhaps you could find a company prepared to pay to have a ‘pink wrap’ put on your car, again in exchange for advertising.  The possibilities are endless!

Alternatively, if you can’t get the time off work (boo hiss) but would like to help in some way, you could sell Special Pink Raffle Tickets, through our JustGiving link.  Just share it via email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and within your workplace.  (Intranet would be perfect).   1st Prize is a ‘Couture Cut’ by Celebrity Hairdresser Lee Stafford, plus a Goody Bag of his products! Tickets are just £1 each and every penny will go to the Little Princess Trust.

Thanks for taking the time to read this Blog…. if you like it, don’t miss the next one 😉
