Craft Marathon May 2016 - Wot a Stunning Time!


Yo!... Last Saturday a group of my crafty pals and I got together to raise some funds for
 Demelza House, Children's Hospice and The Harrietsham Ferret Rescue Center.
 It was the MOST super day. Fun and laughter all the way 
 We had a fab time as we made cards to distribute to the various Demelza House shops to sell.
 Val White, along with some help from her grandson, Conner, did a wonderful job to ensure it all went smoothly. Val had organised the ticket sales that included a delicious Fish and chip lunch. 
There was a raffle, various competitions and a lucky dip that lasted throughout the day. 
Anything in fact to make us open our purses and spend
I had to go home to get more cash!
I would like to send our warm thanks to Tracey from Lavinia Stamps, Sue from Imagination Crafts and Lucy from Sweet Poppy Stencils who were very generous and donated such lovely crafty products for us to include in our raffle.


Barbara Cleggett baked this stunner of a cake so we could guess the weight. 
Thank you Barbara x and Paula brought along loads of pretty
 Bracelets for us to sell, thank you Paula x
We will post the full totals when we have them. We have over a 1000 + cards to give to Demelza House to sell. Many crafters that could not attend sent in hundreds to us, thank you folks x. 
The monies raised by ticket sales and competitions/raffle on the day was over £460plus more coming in or going directly to the the Ferret Rescue Center.
PHEW! Happy Day and a profit! 
Finally, a special mention to those lovely ladies that bought tickets but for various reasons could not join us on the day but have sent in, or are sending cards they have made to us ... Thank you. 
Plus..... Dianne Cass we want YOU with us next year WE MISSED YOU... a lot !

  10. It sounds like you had lots of fun and have done amazing work for Demelza House. I didn't know you were doing this . . . but I have a local shop for Demelza, so I'll drop some cards into them direct, in the spirit of your fundraising.

    That's one STUNNINGLY LOVELY cake by the wonderful Barbara. I just know it'll taste as good as it looks too!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
