Whats better than being given £300?!?! I now know for a fact that being sure you're going to have to fork out £300 for something that wasn't your fault - £300 you dont readily have to waste i might add! - and then finding out it was all a mistake and you dont have to pay anything! That is a nice feeling! Trust me! Phew!
This experience of trying to organise a fun adventure activity as a kind of thank you to the pupils i had being teaching has woke me up! not that it has put me off trying to do similar things for the kids in future but just to be extra careful about booking places and not to take their word that they're interested... I was nearly forking out for two empty white water rafts myself!!
