Brain Tumour Charity (The)

We are moving further, faster to help everyone affected by a brain tumour

Charity Registration No. 1150054


This fundraising page is for a raffle to win a handmade rainbow dress by Smile & Make, made to order in your size, and a handmade rainbow pattern clutch bag to compliment the dress. The perfect rainbow outfit!

The raffle is to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity: The Michael Barry Fund in memory of my husband Michael who sadly died from a brain tumour aged only 35. The raffle is part of the upcoming brain tumour awareness month in March, and my #rainbowsforresearch fundraising campaign.

By entering the raffle you could win...

Handmade Rainbow Dress

A vintage inspired dress in a limited edition rainbow design, with a cloud print bodice and polka dot pastel rainbow skirt, made from panels of polka dot fabric all stitched together to make a beautiful gathered skirt. Can be made in ladies' sizes 8-18 - size guide is included in the images below.

The dress will have a sleeveless fitted bodice, boat neckline and gathered skirt. The bodice is shaped with curved princess seams to create a flattering feminine fit and lined in polka dot cotton. The skirt has a full gathered shape with pockets tucked into the side seams. Finished with an invisible zip in the centre back.

100% cotton, handmade in my studio in Staffordshire.

Handmade Rainbow Clutch Bag

Handmade clutch bag in a colourful rainbow print fabric with a contrasting pink resin clasp. Lined with a yellow polka dot fabric, with an internal pocket, finished with a "Look For Rainbows" label.

The bag is handmade from a medium weight cotton, stiffened with interfacing, with fleece between the outer fabric and lining to give the bag body and structure. Handmade in my studio in Staffordshire.

The bag measures approximately 22cm wide x 18 cm high x 7cm deep. The resin clasp fastens with magnetic closures.

Raffle Rules

Raffle tickets are only £3 each and can be bought by making a donation to this page. Multiple tickets can be bought by making donations in multiples of £3, e.g. 2 tickets for a donation of £6. The winner will be drawn at 9pm on Saturday 3 March 2018 and announced on Facebook and Instagram. PLEASE NOTE this raffle is open to UK entrants only - with apologies to any international friends.

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killers of children and under 40s yet receive less than 2% of the national spend on cancer research in the UK and so funding for this research is vitally needed. All proceeds from the raffle will be used to fund research into high grade brain tumours in the hope that we might reduce the harm caused by brain tumours, improve survival and one day find a cure.

Thank you for your support!
