Well, we've been practising hard for months now and we think we've got it nailed - we're ready and we're raring to go. No, not running... I'm talking about the Charleston!
Tonight is the big night, the final flapper-tastic fandago that is The Neverest Girl's Gatsby Party! We'll be twirling our beads, fluttering our feather boas and shimmying our socks off tonight in order to say goodbye and a great big THANK YOU before we head off in just a few short weeks.
We started this adventure thinking that we might try and make it an opportunity to raise a bit of dosh for a worthy cause - we looked into a few charities and the overwhelming feeling was that A Chacun Son Everest was the one for us. Based in Chamonix, ACSE is run by Dr Christine Janin, an inspirational and remarkable woman who for the past 20 years has been providing an amazing service for children and women who have fought for a second chance at life. Her team of mountain guides, therapists, councillors and activity leaders ensure that for one week they come out here and do what they perhaps thought would never be possible. Whether it's physical strength or self-confidence that needs healing, they get the best care possible during their week in the mountains.
"A bit of dosh" is now at over 10,000€ and rising! We knew we had a great network of friends and family between us but the generosity and support that you've all shown has been incredible - you rock and we love you for it! The money that you have raised will make a massive difference to ACSE and is hugely appreciated - in case you didn't already know, we would like to make it clear that we are paying for every aspect of the trip ourselves so that every single euro you have donated is going directly to the charity.
Time has flown and none of us can quite believe that we're going to actually be at Everest Base Camp very soon - excited is not the word for how we're feeling right now! Come and join us tonight at Les Caves to party the night away one last time before we leave - entry is free of charge and the lovely Leila is offering a drinks promo. It all kicks off from 8pm, see you there xxx
