This simple idea is based on the “Disappearing Lunch” idea

but with a “twist”

It is a great way to get together with friends or family and

have some fun while raising money for our worthwhile Appeal.

What could you do together?

You COULD have a coffee morning, or a meal together or a BBQ

OR you could go bowling, play tennis or golf.... or petanque?

Play games at home such as bridge, whist, dominoes, Scrabble, Rummikub

Discussion groups, book club, just a chat and some cake?

Invite someone to go walking, shopping or even the cinema.

Forget the cinema...get some pals round for a movie evening at home with popcorn etc.

If YOU think of anymore..let US know!!

So how does it work?

This idea really does work providing you, the host, follow these simple rules;

You start with a small group of people. 

In this example we will have SIX who have been invited

to get together for a function or past-time.

The person starting it makes it clear that each of the six people will make a modest contribution and for this example again we will suggest £5 each.

ROUND 1 – Mrs SoandSo has invited 6 people and they have paid £5 each.

(Total încome = £30)

ROUND 2 - Each of those 6 people will in turn invite 5 guests to do whatever they wish,

   (it doesn’t have to be the same as the previous round)

(Total = 6x5 = 30 x £5 = £150)

ROUND 3 - Each of the 30 then invite 4.  Total = 120 x £5 = £600

ROUND 4 - Each of the 120 only invite 3. Total = 360 x £5 = £1800

ROUND 5 - Each of the 360 invite 2. Total = 720 x £5 = £3600 

ROUND 6 - Each of the 720 invite 1. Total = 720 x £5 = £3600 

 If everybody follows this to the end, you will raise £9780.

Obviously, if you charge more, you can make more!!

So the further the event runs, LESS people come face to face towards the end

Therefore it is true that LESS is MORE

There is No Time Limit

GIVE IT A GO......
