EVEN MORE raffle prizes...

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

  3. This is amazing Fee, I am a Macmillan Dietitian and always feel very humbled and privileged to be in my job. I held a coffee morning last year and everyone was just so so generous. I will of course be supporting it this and each and every year xox I hope its a resounding success x Penny

  4. SO sad I cannot be there... I know I have said it before, but I am stressing the point... ;-) SO excited about all your lovely prizes! I just know you are going to raise LOTS of money!

  5. Glad to hear that it is going so well already. The blanket is beautiful, by the way.

  6. Ooh, Fee, I wish I could come! I've bought some raffle tickets in the hope that I'll win a lovely prize, but it's one of my favourite charities anyway. Have a fab day and can't wait to see the pictures!
