Cash is under threat across our planet.
Card schemes hate cash, as they can only wring profit from their debt-creating plastic products.
Visa and MasterCard have both made clear that cash is their enemy. Since 90% of all purchases on our planet are made using cash, this enemy of the card schemes must be the trusty friend of humanity.
Cash-is-Cool is working tirelessly to defend cash from predatory card schemes.
As many of you will know, for our first 'Money Can't Buy' competition, we had two pairs of Take That tickets up for grabs, to see the boys on their Progress Live Tour.
One of our competiton winners Jocelyn Clark took her daughter Charlotte, and wrote to us to tell us about their trip...
I was excited to win the tickets, although slightly reticent as I had never been to Wembley before! Having told my 16 year old daughter, Charlotte that we had won, and seen her excitement, I knew I had to push myself to make the journey.
We left from Bradford on Avon, early afternoon, and drove to Hammersmith to park. We then took the tube to Wembley, after a very nice ticket sales man told us the best way to get there. I could not believe how slick Wembley is at getting people in and out, there was 85000 of us there!!
Pet shop boys on first, I enjoyed this as I liked them first time round. Charlotte didn’t know the songs but enjoyed photographing the stage show. Then eventually Take That came on without Robbie, - wow what a show! After a few numbers they did a fantastic trick of disappearing into the screen – only to be seen as fantasy characters with Robbie who then appeared through the screen. He did not disappoint, and he plus the whole of Take That put on one of the best shows Charlotte and I have ever seen.
I am so grateful to you for picking us as winners , this was a great Mum and daughter bonding session we had a ball (if a very tiring night!) - getting back home at 2.30 in the morning with a good lie in the next day!
Thanks Jocelyn for writing in to tell us about your trip to the Take That concert. We are so pleased that you and Charlotte had such a great time!
