This is the first post of a few as it's been quite busy here recently.
The first on my list is to let you all know how things went on Thursday night. As most of you know a friend of mine organised a Ladies Night (no strippers!) in aid of Candlelighter's, a Yorkshire based children's charity. This started because a friend of hers little girl Florence had terminal cancer at only 4 years old. I have to say 'had' as unfortunately little Florence sadly lost her battle on Tuesday evening of last week.
Many of you out there saw my appeal either through my blog or other people who posted about the event and sent the most fantastic cards for me to sell on the night. I want to show you a few photo's...
From 5 baskets to 2, this is all I went home with (and the four cans of beer which my mum won in the raffle)! We are still selling the rest, my mum is taking them to work next week, followed by myself when half term is over.
So the grand total of the night, I gave Jayne £133 from the sale of the cards. With the rest of the money she sent a cheque off to Candlelighters for £500. Brilliant!
I want to again say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated cards, posted on their blogs and sent good wishes. We should be all very proud of ourselves. If you did post on your blog and you want to mention how we did (as a lot of messages came via other people) I would be grateful.
Lots of Love
