October is over!

go-sober-for-octOctober is over, *sigh of relief* which means the Hidden Perspectives team are now free to go out and enjoy their favourite commodity… Alcohol! Sober for October is now over and not only did all members of the team adhere to the challenge and stayed sober with style, but we raised an amazing £528.01! A massive thank you to all of you who supported us and helped us through October!

And congratulations to all those that accepted the challenge this year and to those that have been inspired to do it next year! For those of you that haven’t been involved yet there’s still time for a last minute donation (https://www.gosober.org.uk/team/hiddenperspectives).

Before we say goodbye to Sober for October (until next year), hear is what the team has to say about it all:

Katie: “I would like to say that Minna is my hero because of the amount of money she raised and her kick-ass attitude to being sober (although I’ve a feeling she’ll already be slavering a bit and falling over). I’m just very, very relieved it’s over. Next year I’m doing Movember. Growing that moustache will be way easier than staying sober for a month. ”

Aysha: “It was for a good cause and I will definitely do it again, but I’ll be honest, I Cider sigh of relief when I knew it was all over.”

Elena: “A very worthy cause…Minna was absolutely amazing! Hopefully across the county people raised loads of money and even with our minuscule contribution we have made a difference. As to whether we’ll be getting drunk tonight…I’m already on the gin 😉 Well done everyone xxx”

Minna: “I have always been really impressed of British culture of fund raising, and I am very proud of my friends, who didn’t let me down 😀  I guess everybody knows that I love my glass of red, always full bodied… a glass of bubbly, for any occasion… a smooth ale, in a nice pub with friends… hmm… lovely! So I must admit I have never waited November so eagerly! Will definitely celebrate this weekend ;)”
