Story

Would you like to be in with a chance to win some yarn and other goodies and help fight heart disease in the process? Read on!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Last year I raised over £4000 for the British Heart Foundation by taking part in the Great North Run and the Yorkshire 10 mile event. Two of my friends, Julia and Charlotte, who have been very supportive since Rowley died in 2016, are running the Brighton Marathon in Rowley's memory. I decided to help them with their fundraising by organising a bit of a woolly giveaway. I contacted some of my favourite yarny folk to ask if they might be able to donate a prize and I have been totally overwhelmed by people's generosity. Thank you so, so much to all the wonderfully generous people who have given a prize to help with our fundraising. 

Prizes have been arriving thick and fast and if you would like to be in with a chance of winning one of these amazing prizes, all you need to do is make a donation of £2 for the British Heart Foundation. 

Please make sure that you tick the box alongside 'I'm happy to be contacted by'so that if you're one of the winners, I can contact you to send you your prize. This is really important or I won't be able to get in touch with you. The giveaway is open world-wide, so please do enter. You never know, you could be one of the lucky ones!
