Meet & Greet – DAPPER LAUGHS

8121 (2)

 

MEET & GREET with Dapper Laughs …….

Dapper Laughs is a British comedian, actor, presenter, writer and Viner.

Dapper Laughs is a ‘proper lad’ giving lad advice on romancing the ladies and being a geeza. His trade sayings are “Moist” and “Six Second Sex Secrets”.

He plays a stereotypical image that guys have, within today’s society….

This guy is getting bigger and funnier by the day, he is doing a UK tour in Feb, has been all over facebook, vine, twitter, you tube and will be hosting the Georgina’s Gang Hint of Pink Ball!  Here’s your opportunity to get that selfie pic and brag to your mates about how you’ve met the ultimate ‘proper lad’.  All we ask is that you make a donation to Georgina’s Gang on the day.   To meet him and have a chat come to St Pierre Park on 22 March 2014 at 1300, he will be there for 1 hour.

We really hope as many of you can make it to help us raise money for our charity and to meet the funniest guy around!!

Bingo!

Well our Bingo dabbers, what a night we had eh!!!!!
We raised ( drum roll) £2047.00! Which is absolutely brilliant! Thank you to Maureen and Carol who run the bingo without taking anything for themselves – ever! Thank you to all the callers and canteen ladies, very yummy stuff! I love the fact that all the actual bingo book sales go to make the cash prizes so the more there the higher the cash prize.
Very exciting when you are playing!
Thank you everyone who came x
