Can I just say a big thank you to the CHAD (Mansfield Chronicle Advertiser) for confirming yet again that causes such as the 2 Anthony Nolan Clinics that are taking place next week, are less important than Mrs Browns cat being stuck up a tree, or the picture of a pile of old tyres !.
Nice to know that after months of planning my local paper bothered to promote the event without a picture, in the side box of a column, and all said, was summed up in 12-14 lines of text.
Perhaps in order to get these people to take anything seriously and find an article regarding sourcing potential life savers newsworthy i must paint myself green, play loud music and drive the Scirocco around the town square..maybe then the story would make at least page 10 !
WHY DO I BOTHER ?
On a more constructive note, can I just say a big thank you to a lady called Sue Harries at West Nott's College who proved to be a much more useful source of potential donor recruitment due to her upbeat and positive attitude that she exhibited when I contacted her ref publicising our event to the students at the college.
Sue = 1 CHAD = 0
