Hi , I'm a member of the charity's Exec Committee ( its trustees) and I'll be blogging from time to time about what we do and how you might like to get involved.
Hope you all have your raffle tickets safely and are selling away. We would love to send you more or you can buy online. In addition to the big cash prizes, one of the things we do is approach companies to donate prizes. It can be soul destroying. Many don't reply at all or the big companies have significant partnerships with big charities so do no not donate to raffles etc. then you get the wonderful people who reply generously and quickly and wish us well. Oliver has just told me that the lovely husband and wife team lucas and hayley at alphabetbags.com have sent FIVE of their gorgeous bags as prizes. Do check their site. They have some fun designs. Abel & cole are donating an organic veg delivery and the Directors of Hall & Woodhouse have donated £50 vouchers for use in any one of their very fine pubs ( I can testify how yummy their pub restaurants are!)
If you work for a company that might donate (or are a very good customer!) Please let us know. We can contact on your behalf. Remember all our work relies on donation income.
