    Just heard that I've won a fancy gas bbq worth £599 so that's June, over £500 and K ticked off.
    Can't quite believe it. It's quite funny though, because husband has always said he only liked charcoal bbqs, but now all of a sudden, he can't wait to try a gas one

    As a bye-the-way, does the newt have a name, or is it Newt?

    And I thought we were allowed to have up to 3 marked off, (I'm sure this is the only way I will get anywhere near completing most of the tasks!!)

    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    Well done on that and the newt says yes of course you can have that as an effort especially as you don't get to keep the prize.

    Well done Missus

    I personally only donate to two charities The Great North Air Ambulance and Help for Heroes, but we get a lot of "fake" charity bags around here asking for donations/phones/clothing ect and they don't even have a charity number on them
    Originally posted by mansey
    I get exactly the same down here, it's extremely frustrating, especially as I have lots of very elderly people who live alone near me who get conned into giving sometimes hundreds of pounds to these people. As a family the local charities that we give to are Devon Air Ambulance and a local hospice and then also to Parkinsons UK as sadly a family member suffered for 10 years with it but apart from that we're extremely cautious as to who we give to. I find it very sad that these chancers have damaged the reputation of other genuine charities

    Wow! Congratulations Newnan, what a fantastic win Isn't it funny how they change their minds when something is offered to them as free It was the same when I won a smartphone earlier this year, my father was perfectly happy with his old one (it wouldnt have looked out of place on the flintstones!) but as soon as I offered him the new one, he had suddenly "been considering a new one for a while"

    That's your excuse, and you're sticking to it

    But, if you really hadn't wanted to be just a bit rude, you could always have added the O, and spelt it properly (but then, that wouldn't have been so amusing)

    Well done to all recent Challenge winners

    ...and extra well done, Newnan, on your posh BBQ win!

    I am elated to report a couple of small wins for my girls http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5662367

    TBH I'm just relieved I can cross off the June challenge and relax for the rest of the month!
