Raising Money For

Dry July

Donate to Gavin

To challenge myself to a month off the booze, well at least that's how it started.
As time progressed, a lot of the generous people who have donated, shared their stories of how their lives have been affected by cancer in some way or another. That has helped with the motivation and now my goal is just to raise as much as possible to give some comfort to those affected by cancer.

This will get you over the $5k Gavin. Great effort and we at Watts & Hughes are drinking heavily to support the liquor industry in your month sabbatical.
Losing any weight ? Rob , Pete and the others.

Rob, Pete, and the W&H team, Wow. Thank you so much for your generosity. Getting past the goal can mean I can relax and have another cup of tea..... No weightloss unfortunately due to alcohol sugar being replaced with doughnuts!!!

Very impressive Gavin, you are a legend. The JFC team are proud of your effort (and definitely a little shocked!), and are pleased to be donating to such a fantastic cause at the same time as supporting you. Keep up the superb effort for "just a bit longer"

Thanks heaps guys, I really appreciate the support. Was nervous at the start but I've shocked myself as to how easy it has been. Not dependant after all.

$25.00 from Peter Rooney

Really. You have lasted two weeks. I seem to remember you not lasting two minutes on fishing trips despite agreements as to waiting to catch a legal fish before imbibing.
Well go Gav/

Thanks heaps Peter, I've surprised myself too by actually enjoying it. Although, I will enjoy a beer or two on August 1st. Trust you and Viv are well, and must catch up sometime soon, it's been far too long.

I'm impressed Gav.... you've given up your favourite things.... and you're still smiling!

Thanks Bronwen, I'm actually enjoying it which is not something I expected. (That doesn't mean I'm converted though)
