The Pearlies of St Pancras attended the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary Open day http://www.iwdonkey-sanctuary.comDonkeys played a very big part in the Coster Mongers daily life and were treated as one of the family Donkeys were also referred to as Jerusalem Ponies. We were proud to welcome two new young Pearlies into our family their names are Prince Joseph and Princess Daisy they are family members who live on the Isle of Wight. The Donkey sanctuary open day was a perfect time for their first outing helping raise fun and funds for the Sanctuary. Joseph and Daisy were stars and were natural Pearlies and fundraisers a lovely day was had by all. We look forward to more fundraising outings with Prince Joseph and princess Daisy.

Book signing at Arments Pie and Mash Shop

The Pearlies of St Pancras were made very welcome by the team and customers from Arments Pie and mash shop. The pie and mash is fantastic it brought back fond memories for me when I was a child living in the area and mum gave me 2 shillings and sixpence on a Saturday to go to Arments for pie and mash. I set up a stall outside the shop along with my pearly cab and there was a constant stream of customers queuing up outside - most of them joined me for a knees up and kindly donated for our charity Great Ormond Street. Cheryl from Arment organised a raffle and we sold a number of dad's books.

At the end of the day Arments generously donated £100 so the total amount which was raised on the day for G.O.S.H was £425.56 and many smiles from the generous staff and customers an amazing total Many thanks.
