Dear friends,

I am thrilled to announce an exciting fundraising initiative in support of an incredible organization, the Befriending Scheme. As many of you know, the Befriending Scheme has been instrumental in positively impacting the lives of vulnerable people, and I am honoured to play a small part in furthering their mission.

To raise funds for this worthy cause, I have decided to auction off three special ZX Spectrum retro computers. These nostalgic devices hold a special place in my heart and the hearts of many, and I believe they will bring joy to the lucky winners.

The auction will take place on a date to be decided, and I invite you all to participate and show your support. Whether you are an avid retro gaming enthusiast or simply have a passion for making a difference, your involvement in this event will make a tremendous impact.

In addition to the auction, I will be hosting a live stream during the event, where we can come together as a community and celebrate the spirit of giving. During the live stream, I will share stories about the Befriending Scheme's incredible work, engage with viewers, and provide updates on our progress towards the fundraising goal. It will be a fantastic opportunity to connect, inspire, and contribute to a brilliant cause.

Every contribution, no matter how big or small, will help create positive change in the lives of those supported by the Befriending Scheme. Together, we can make a lasting impact and bring happiness to those who need it most.

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for your support. Your generosity will not only benefit the Befriending Scheme directly but also send a powerful message of compassion and community spirit. Let us come together and make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey.

Warmest regards,
