Ordinary Lives?

Hosted in Dovey Yacht Club, Wales, the simple, effective series of Ordinary Lives? talks not only raise money for FRANK, they attract unexpected adventurers, entrepeneurs and businesspeople with fascinating stories to tell. Here, Katie, one of the three brains behind the series updates us on the story so far and what to look forward to in 2017. 

The most recent ‘Ordinary Lives?’ event took place in Dovey Yacht Club on the 11th of December. These talks are designed so that local people with supposedly ‘ordinary’ lives can share their weird and wonderful experiences. These events raise money for FRANK water that work with communities to provide access to clean, safe water and sanitation through sustainable methods http://www.frankwater.com. 

The most recent talk was done by Bob Tyrell with the story on how his family’s name became one of the most successful formula 1 teams in the world. Also, a great talk was Nick Dawson’s experience dog sledding in Sweden. Sound ‘ordinary’ to you? 

These pair of talks alone raised £580 for Frank Water and the talks in all have raised over £3000 so far. The next talk will take place in the Dovey Yacht Club once again, beginning at 18.30 on the 8th of January. Everyone welcome! Welcome in the New Year with inspiration from ‘Ordinary Lives?’
