Charity Cycle for Azul Wasi

13 01 2021

Hola Latin Quarter

I hope you’re all as well as you can be and I send you my best wishes from down here in the wild west. So here we go again and my suspicion is that we have a long haul still ahead.

So it’s time to get back on the bicycle and see if I can tempt you all into a bit of light hearted sport action challenge related predictive commitment and monetary obligation (effectively a bet). And raising a few coppers for Azul Wasi at the same time.

And those coppers will add up, for last July’s event your coppers added up to £700……fab, thanks and well, well done….as equally for all the other coppers from the Zoom events that have happened too. I know this is really appreciated by Alcides and the boys.

I have planned a 30 mile route, one mile for each of the boys and carers at Azul Wasi, which I will complete before the Spring Equinox on the 21st March. It will be an up and down route and I will ride it in one session only. This should be COVID compliant and safe (I’m fitting some stabilisers I picked up recently from the tip).

As with the July ride to 3000 masl, this weekend – Sat 16th Jan – I will be posting the details to www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/thomas-jolly

There will be a number of aspects of the challenge for you to consider and have a stab at predicting actually what will happen on the day, for which you will be able to make your commitment and be in the running for one of our wonderful Peruvian prizes.

Please therefore check out the Justgiving site at the weekend, take some time to digest the ‘form’ information and opportunities for prizes and register your predictions.

Thank you for your support and stay safe, Abrazos con distancia, Tom  





New Year Wishes from Azul Wasi & activities

13 01 2021

Happy New year to you all, hope 2021 brings us a step closer to dancing together again. Hope you are all safe and well. The children & Alcides send their greetings, many thanks to Patrick we have the translation now ! You can view it here https://youtu.be/ytm1A1_uEKg

Also Tom Jolly will be back on his bike again soon cycling to raise money for the children at Azul wasi again, see separate post.

Latin Quarter are zooming again ! Many thanks to a few volunteers, cooking, quizzes, shines, Kath & Yamil hopefully and a few other things.

Kicking us off on Tuesday 19th Jan at 7.30pm is Chris with a Chicken and coconut laksa dish which can be made as a veggie dish too. Please share this to pass the word if you can.

To book one of the 20 spaces for the class, email LQsalsadundee@gmail.com by Saturday to see if enough interest please. Then details about how to donate, the zoom link and your list of ingredients will be forwarded.

Suggested donations for the zoom events are £ 4 – £5 each, but if people want to donate less or more that’s fine. We’re aware people are all in different circumstances financially at present. As usual all donations go to the Azul Wasi project in Peru.





BIG THANKS

19 12 2020

Hope you have a good and safe Christmas. It’s been a very difficult time for everyone this year due to Covid which has impacted upon our and our families lives so much . 
 A very big thank you to all of you who contributed to the zoom session initiatives since March, in total we raised £1, 407.  With special thanks to the volunteers for their cooking sessions and talks.  Also a massive thank you to those of you who made personal donations to Azul Wasi this year which also raised £490 which is amazing.
So a grand total of  £1,897 from the Latin Quarter sessions/ personal donations and Tom’s sponsored cycle also raised £615 this year too.   This will help Azul Wasi greatly going forward. 
If anyone would like to contribute still or purchase a voucher for Christmas or another occasion please let me know. Also looking for other ideas for cooking sessions & talks for the first quarter next year until the classes are able to restart in person. So please get in touch if you would like to volunteer yourself or someone else ! Other ideas/ initiatives for fund raising within covid limits are welcome too. 
  





BIG thanks
