Many thanks to Kim Lawrence for £29.70 which was raised during January and Febraury from the sale of stamps which have been kindly donated by customers that use her greetings card shop and local businesses from her village smile.

Sophie and Alice Bloodworth have had the money in from their fundraiser scavenger hunt and it is over £100 - thank you very much to you both!

    We have had a flurry of fundraising events happening recently and we would like to thank the following people:

  • Emma Kearsley has been busy with a Thorntons tombola and Valentine's card sale at work and has raised £121.32! Emma says, "Never underestimate how much people love chocolate!" Thank you Emma for your efforts!





  • Sophie and Alice pictured below are the daughters of Deborah Found-Bloodworth, one of our stitchers. They convinced a few of their friends to help raise money for Lovequilts for a school assignment. They raised over £100 hosting a treasure hunt - final total still to come. Many thanks to both of you for your efforts!

    Finally, we would like to thank Moira and her family for £300 in donations collected at the funeral of her beautiful daughter Chantelle. Thank you for thinking of us at such a difficult time, Moira, and we know our stitchers have been thinking about you and your family too.
