MS Awareness Week

blogged by me domestic goddess On 4/22/2008 09:12:00 AM

This week is MS Awareness week, and ties in perfectly with the charity auction I am holding on Saturday night to raise money for MS

As many of you will be aware, my dad passed away on 15/09/06 after a 15 year battle with MS. My first retreat was only days later, and the UK scrapping community rallied round to donate goods to raise money for this terrible disease. We raised £100/$200 through the sales of raffle tickets

Last year , i did it all again, on a much grander scale, with the help from Ali Edwards and Becky Higgins, as well as manufactures like Tinkering Inks, My Minds Eye and Hambly. On the night, over £700/$1500 was raised, as you can imagine i was ecstatic!.
This year we have donations from Ali Edwards, Emily Falconbridge, Lisa Lam (U Handblog), Lucy Folch and Little Cotton Rabbits, as well as Hambly, Purple Cow, Ellison, Prima, Heidi Grace , to name a handful of wonderful sponsors. (check here for an ever growing list). I hope to raise in excess of last years total, and with the generosity of all the delegates attending this weekends retreat , i know we can.

If you have anything you would like to add to the pool of amazing donations please email me for details to send donations too at
I am running my 5k again on September 7th at Hyde Park, if you wish to sponsor me, my Just Giving page is in the right hand bar.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by and your continous support in raising awareness for MS

    This is such a great way to raise money. My husband has MS and is unable to work for the past 3 years and I have had to start working after 17. It is such a terrible disease, to slowly watch a strong wonderful man, struggle on a daily basis to do routine things.

    You are a great person and much success in you fund raising.
