This weekend I held a charity fundraising event for Thyroid UK (TUK)
TUK supports thousands of people, including me, in their quest for better thyroid health, care & treatment. Admission to our little garden included tea and cake and some very generous friends and local businesses kindly donated gifts for a raffle.
We also held a plant and craft sale and had an amazing turnout. New friends were made and old friends came along too.
Thankfully the predicted storms, forecast to hit us during the whole event, didn't arrive until the evening when the last piece of bunting was tidied away.
Here are a few photos from the event.
I am so grateful to everyone who attended and for the generosity shown.
I'm also incredibly thankful to my husband (Chief tea maker) who steadied my nerves as the event drew closer, my daughter (Raffle Organiser), son (shuffler of plants & cup collector), Kirsty (cup cake maker extraordinaire), Dawn (event photographer).
I could not have done any of this without them.
Between us all an incredible £216 was raised for Thyroid UK.
