Sunshine Smile Day

3.25am - I am running late ! Usually here for 2.45am !

At 6am I will be broadcasting my 115th show on Radio CRMK - www.crmk.co.uk - DO LISTEN IN.

The PODCAST will be available some time after 9am.

I have thirty-two tracks on this morning's playlist. I have gone back to the start of my career as a radio DJ and dipped into songs I played on my first thirty-two shows.

With 46 days to go I am today wrapping the music around SUNSHINE SMILE DAY 2019.

So much is happening, amazing things happening, so many good causes involved...............

The task now is to turn the potential for an amazing day into reality.

Can I share the planning with you now...........

This year there are two parts to the SUNSHINE to the SMILE.

Everything is happening at Milton Keynes Irish Centre, Manor Fields. So kindly hosted by the centre and its secretary LEONITE Paula.

During the afternoon we will be holding SUNSHINE SMILE DAY followed by SMILE DISCO in the evening.

Do check the links and see what is happening.  I updated everything yesterday but already so much has happened since that update.

This is going to be an amazing day.

On Monday Ronald McDonald House came up with the idea for ADOPT A TEDDY - within 24 hours we had more than ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY teddies for people to adopt.

I have a vast collection of vinyl music, some I play on our traditional disco twin deck, some we sell at our car boot sales to fund our music, some are particularly valuable.

Yesterday I came up with an idea for Sunshine Smile Day  - let's have a Vinyl Tombola !

A few weeks ago I had an idea for Milton Keynes Pearly King and Queen.

Today after the radio show I am going to try to turn this into a reality.

Yesterday we booked several inflatables. We have pony rides. We have many, many good causes running all kinds of stalls. We have a fire eater. We have St Johns Ambulance giving first aid demonstrations.

We have the police coming to arrest anyone who is not smiling !

We have, of course, a burger van and ice cream, We have a bar and a hot doughnut stall.

Today I have to set up a JustGiving page for the sponsored haircut. The money is to be given to Curly Tails Pig Rescue Centre to sponsor our very own piggie - ALFIE.

We will be running a number of stalls ourselves with all the money going to Ronald McDonald House Birmingham to help them care for families with a child sick in hospital.

I still can not get over the incredible, amazing love and support Barclays Premier League is giving to Sunshine Smile Day.

The Mayor of Milton Keynes will be supporting Sunshine Smile Day.

Yes - we have an amazing day planned - a day packed with FUN and SMILES.

Admission is FREE and there is plenty of car parking available.

But things do not stop there !

SMILE DISCO will be taking place in the evening.

A fantastic evening of retro pop music with a BBQ, 50/50 cash raffle and bar.

Oh, yes of course there will be lots and lots and lots of silly games !

Admission to the disco is by COIN, TIN & SMILE.  The coins
will be given to Milton Keynes Winter Night Shelter, the tins to Milton Keynes Food Bank, the smiles to Ronald McDonald House Birmingham. ADMISSION PAYABLE ON THE DOOR.

Come along - have fun - smile - support some extra special good causes.

Ahead of SUNSHINE SMILE DAY we are having a rock and roll party at Bletchley Bandstand to tell everyone what is happening.

We will be handing out sweets, balloons and fliers.

A HUGE BIG THANK YOU to Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council for making this possible.

Yesterday I was in the council's office - they truly are special and lovely people.

Then, one week before, SUNSHINE SMILE DAY I will broadcast an overnight radio party to promote all that is happening.


Gosh - I have been working on today's page for almost two hours !

Time to check for typo's, publish the page and then get ready for today's show.  Do listen in.............. 6am to 8am www,crmk.co.uk
