    That's a lot of shipping boxes. And lucky you, your grass is dry (I hope).
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    @CCC Tightly packed ones and yes the grass is dry although they didn't stay there for long anyway.

    Fantastic effort :-) I've never seen a crescent of Chima sets ;-)

    Awesome haul for the kids!

    Well I can make out a hospital, a person and a Lego set. So all is good. I can also see a thumb

    Heh-heh, yep, although it may be a fingernail. She had these long fingernails, and had trouble holding the phone and keeping it steady for the shot.

    Anyway, they went with my original photo with all the sets. Here's the Facebook post FWIW (dunno if I'm posting this link correctly or not; I gave up on Facebook a couple of years ago):

    Warren Elsmore who many of you know here or if you don't you may have bought his excellent recent book handed over the delivery at Yorkhill in Glasgow today. He is pictured with Claire Hughes from Yorkhill who communicated with the play team and the following sets were supplied.

    #4636 Police Building Set x 37
    #4637 Safari Building Set x 37
    #4630 Basic Bricks x 2
    #853195 Calendar x 3
    #850581 Friends Calendar x 4
    #40080 Friends Pencil Holder x 3
    #628 Doors And Windows x 1
    #620 Blue Baseplate x 3

    Big thanks to Warren for driving them over and Claire for being so patient.

    Thanks for the update @sirkevbags. Are there still sets to be distributed?
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    There should be more updates within the next ten days. A real attempt has been made to tailor the requirements for each hospital and that has caused some delays. The thread here will be kept updated and when everything is complete there will be a front page article with all the pictures and quotes in one place.

    Next year's raffle will surely be even bigger, so how do you plan to deliver all these items then? I wonder if you can hire Royal Mail lorries...? :o)

    Great job everybody.
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Royal Mail are meanies and want paying for things like delivery. TNT are much more generous ;-)
  • JenniJenni USAMember Posts: 1,376
    ^ I took my American/Australian daughter too! That's actually only a third of what we handed over BTW. We didn't unpack everything as not all of it was staying in the play room.

    Did the hospital in Sacramento, CA get a delivery?
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    @AFFOL_Shellz_Bellz All remaining deliveries are imminent and that includes the Sacramento one. I understand Sweden is happening today or tomorrow so there could be more great pictures later.
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,515
    Once it is all done and dusted, are you going to give us a total piece count handed over? Not sets, pieces. I like big numbers.
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    I MAY do it for boxed sets....... Polys have been done by the bag full so no real record.
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844

    @SirKevBags Thanks for that info. I will watch for the notice!
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Not wanting to be spammy but if anyone has missed the announced thread re the building contest be sure to check it out.
  • adiemcadiemc UKMember Posts: 470
    Great stuff. Thanks for the update @sirkevbags

    Mountfield isn't any "old lawnmower" @SirKevbags especially the SP180, that's a hell of a mower :)

  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,500
    This thread makes me happy :-)
    I can't wait for the next event to raise funds for the newly inaugurated Fairy Bricks :-)
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Superb effort James. Great work on the delivery and the pictures. We are almost done. Mark has delivered to Wales but pictures sadly were not possible and Christian delivered in Germany this week. By my reckoning that leaves one delivery to complete.
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    I've been asked loads of times privately what happened to the Australian girl with with the red leg in the pictures provided by @Basta . Well I've been in touch with the hospital. She was injured in a skiing accident and with the help of her pink brick box she has made a recovery.
  • caperberrycaperberry LondonMember Posts: 2,226
    What a superb sight, well done James, Sir HF and everyone who entered!!
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Just heard from Christian Krutzfeldt who I'm sure many of you know is the LEGO Ambassador for the German LUG 1000steine. Christian responded to my request for help when we had a problem with the handover and brought the Diako hospital in Flensburg on board.

    The vast majority of their requests were for Duplo so thats what was supplied. Christian is on the left handing over the sets to Dr Dördelmann. Thanks for helping out Christian!

    @rocao. thanks, Nice to see the kids at Shriners will have loads of Lego to keep them busy!
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Outstanding effort @rocao So this effectively ends things for 2013 raffle fun. Who thinks we can pull it off again this year? Bigger? Perhaps. Better? Definitely not!

    Anyone remember the name of the bloke @Jenni beat up when he dared to question why money isn't donated? If I remember correctly I passed over $600 which became $1818. I think that's pretty conclusive that us doing the shopping works :-)
