Hamper from our Tube Cop

Greetings from New Orleans & Tube Relief Reunion Update

You may remember that a few weeks ago we had a
reunion with Tami Brisset, the New Orleans Police Captain who came over in August to take part in Tube Relief and then ended up being stranded here while Hurricane Katrina was wrecking havoc to her home.

She said she would send me a "little something" for organising the party, so I've just received quite a big something in the form of a package, containing all the New Orleans food goodies below:

Hamper from Tami

It's extremely generous of Tami as she already gave us all a load of Mardi Gras beads when she was over. I must think of a suitable food related quiz so that I can share some of this. But in the meantime, thanks so much Tami, it's really appreciated!

Sam Cawley (pictured on the far right) who was also came to the Tube Relief Reunion and individually raised the most money for the event, has a non Tube plea, which any football fan might be interested in.

She's trying to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis and has the following items for auction:

Manchester United football signed by 13 first team players,
Everton team photo signed by the whole first team squad,
2 adult and 2 junior Exeter match tickets for any league game valid until end of next season,
1 adult and 1 junior Brentford match tickets valid until end of next season,
Signed Yeovil Town "In a Different League" book,
Tottenham Hotspur pennant signed by the first team squad,
Plymouth pennant signed by the first team squad,
Barnet poster signed by the first team squad,
Newcastle programme signed by Alan Shearer,
Bath Rugby poster signed.

Plus something for cricket fans - 2 Hampshire cricket tickets, valid for any Totesport league or Cheltenham and Gloucester trophy, but not floodlit!

If you would like to bid on any, please email her on sam.cawley@btinternet.com.

Many thanks, and watch this space for a food/London Underground related quiz for a share of the hamper!
