One hundred weeks of Good News!

In a time when people are saying that life is still doom and gloom it is good to know that we have managed to bring 100 weeks of good news into the world.

This week we have reached a real landmark, it has been 100 weeks since we launched Banana Crumble. Have we achieved everything we set out to achieve? We would like to say yes but this is not the case as we have had to stop our cash prize draws but we have managed to publish over 400 Good News features since that time. Many of these feature articles are about people raising money, doing inspirational things, overcoming challenges or things that just make us smile. In a time when people are saying that life is still doom and gloom it is good to know that we have managed to bring some good news into the world.

We have raised over £7000 in the fight to help Cystic Fibrosis which is an amount that we are all really proud of. We have hosted curry nights, afternoon teas, collected money, run tombolas and coming up shortly is our biggest fund raising event so far. On the 5th October we are hosting The Banana Crumb-Ball at the Grand Marquee, Halfway House, Brentwood, Essex and at this event we have decided to raise funds for our local Southend Cystic Fibrosis Association. Tickets are £50 and includes two welcome drinks, a three course sit down meal, live music from the Hugh Rainey Dixieland Jazz Band followed by a DJ. If you live in the area why not come along for what will hopefully be a great evening and help us to raise some more funds. There are still some tickets left. If you require further details please contact

We are still hopeful that maybe in the future we will be able to find a sponsor and then be able to reintroduce our cash giveaway, but in the meantime we are going to continue with our good news and raising money and hopefully to bring a smile to everyone and to inspire people to do the best they can both for themselves and for others. If after 100 weeks we have managed this then surely that is a positive thing to have done. We would like to thank everyone for their help with the events and look forward to the next 100 weeks.
