At Party world UK we are always bringing attention to some worthwhile fundraising events. Well now we are very pleased and proud to bring attention to one of our very own and encourage people to donate for race for life.
One of our colleagues took part in race for life for the first time last year and she managed to raise over £100 all on her own! That was a great achievement so this year we want to help and raise even more awareness to help her smash her target from last year.
Race for life helps so many people and families that are affected by the horrible disease cancer. This is a fantastic and worthwhile cause to help in the fight against this horrible illness and help in the treatment and development of treatments so that more and more people each year can say they have beaten it.
Last year Karen completed the Race for life 5K in Cardiff and completed it in 42 minutes which is amazing. This year she is hoping to run the whole course and beat last years time, if she manages this then she has the 10K in her sights for 2015.
After completing this race once she was adamant that she would compete every year there after. It is a charity that is close to her heart and she wants to help in any way she can. We would also like to encourage others to take part also. Race for life takes place in many different areas all over Britain so you are sure to find a race to compete in near you. If you are unable to compete then please donate to someone, even if it is just £1 as those £1’s make all the difference.
We have included the Just giving page details for Karen’s charity page so that you know it is all secure and we will post a copy of the confirmation letter once all the donations have been paid in full. Please help this fantastic cause. Many thanks.

A Fancy dress challenge for charity has been set by a young woman called Samantha Humphreys. Samantha, 29, has been wearing 30 different outfits, 1 per day, leading up to her 30th birthday.
As well as it being a bit of fun, Samantha has set herself a £300 target to raise for a children’s cancer charity. Costumes include Madonna, Tinkerbell, Dorothy, Minnie Mouse and many more.
She said: ‘I love dressing up – this is perfect for me. Because it’s coming up to my 30th, everyone was asking me what I wanted or what I was doing.
‘I just thought I want to do something different, not what everyone else does.’
She has borrowed, hired, and acquired other outfits from many different places to complete her own challenge of wearing the 30 different costumes before her birthday on April 12th.
Samantha from Neath in South Wales is donating all the money that she raises to children’s cancer charity Clic Sargeant. An amazing worth while cause.

There are always charity runs and different events and Party World UK have discovered another fantastic event being held just up the road in the neighbouring City of Swansea.
The Fancy Dress Triathlon is being held in Port Eynon, Gower on 27th September 2014.
The triathlon consists of a 400m swim a 16km bike ride and a 5 km run. The run is open to both men and women of all fitness levels who feel they are capable of competing.
The fancy dress element is nice and easy as there is no set theme so you can wear whatever you would like. Our best recommendation is to wear something that is going to be nice and cool as you will no doubt get very warm competing in the event.
We have hundreds of different fancy dress options available which will be comfortable and reasonably priced so that it does not cost you the earth.
Why not have a look at their website and maybe even sign up to take part! www.fancydresstri.com
This week sees World Book Day come to a school near you! Party World UK has a wide selection of children’s fancy dress costumes.
We stock children’s costumes from age 3 all the way up to age 12, and if your child is a bit taller than your average 12 years old then we also have a wide range of adult costumes in a size small too! We also have a dressing room so that your little ones can try the costumes on so that you can make sure that they fit.
We understand that you would not want to spend a fortune on a costume that is only for the one day so our children’s costumes start from an amazing £9.99!
We keep as big a selection as possible in stock and have some great characters to choose from. The Gruffolo, Horrid Henry, Oliver and even Harry Potter! We also have accessories for some characters too if you didn’t want the full costume such as Harry Potter wands and glasses. Thinking of a Roald Dahl theme? Then why not go for a fox costume for Fantastic Mr Fox or a crocodile costume for the enormous crocodile? There are loads to choose from but hurry up before they sell out!
We are open until 5pm tonight and are open again from 8.30am tomorrow morning for any last minute bits and pieces that you may need, so why not pop along and have a look at what we have left in stock.
We would like to say a big welcome to Partyworld UK our new website. We have been doing some maintenance to the website over the past few weeks and we thank you for your patience. The work is still going on but are hoping to be finished within the next few weeks. Rather than leave the site completely unusable we have opened it up so that you are able to still view the costumes and accessories available and we will be adding sizes during the rest of our maintenance.
We are uploading all new costumes that are now on the market and all the old favourites. All the costumes are from our very well known suppliers and we stock only the best.
Although the website may still be under construction our shop is still open for business as usual and we still have a large selection of different themes and an extensive selection of accessories still available. You are also more than welcome to browse through the catalogues we have in the shop to see if there was anything you would like us to order for you.
We are especially looking forward to getting into stock the new lines that some of our suppliers are bringing out over the coming year. Earlier this month the annual spring fayre took place in Birmingham where all our suppliers bring out there new products to showcase. There are some amazing new costumes that are coming out so keep your eyes peeled for some ingenious ideas.
