Wow - I am (once again) overwhelmed by the amount of support for this cause - thank you to everyone who has donated their marvelous wares and those who have bought raffle tickets!
Together we have raised over £200 already...
and that's before the actual event.
Last year The World's Biggest Coffee Morning raised over £15 million pounds. I'm so glad to be part of it this year. If you can't make mine (details below) then you can find a coffee morning near you by following this link to the Macmillan Cancer Support website.
OR, you can just sit at home and eat cake - but buy a couple of raffle tickets from me here and be there in spirit!
As lots of my blogging pals know our gorgeous middle boy Kenzie was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer just before his second birthday, so rare it only affects 30 children a year and with a 50/50 chance of surviving. But survive he did, thanks to the wonderful work of the team at Manchester Children's Hospital and a large dose of luck. Last year he was finally signed off from the Oncology department - 9 long years later!
We didn't have a Macmillan nurse - but I know they do an amazing job making sure that no one faces cancer alone. Lots of you who have donated have confirmed this and I know it's a charity close to many of our hearts. Like many of you we have also lost many precious family members and friends to this disease - it's pretty hard not to be affected by cancer in one way or another.
So, for £1 you can buy a ticket - with the opportunity to win one of the beautiful handmade treats here
and on my last three blog posts.
There are over 30 prizes now - how ace is that?!
It's almost too late to send me a prize (I would need it by Friday but a photo would suffice in the meantime) but it's not too late to buy a ticket or join me for coffee. The raffle will be drawn on Friday 27th September just after midday.
I have made some little 'Home' Blocks as a contribution...
...and this crochet blanket. I made it on holiday in France.
When Kenzie was very poorly we couldn't go abroad, or anywhere that wasn't within about an hour of a major hospital... I will never take my holidays for granted!
|It's not properly rectangle - but that's the beauty of handmade, right?!|
My address for any more prizes is
423 Stockport Road, Timperley WA15 7XR
And the coffee morning will be here:
Everyone welcome - including little people
(My sister has volunteered to bring some toys!)
Hope to see you there....fee x
