As many of you will be aware a dear friend of mine has been fighting cancer for the last 4 years - the fight is nearing the end...
Her husband is trying to raise £10,000 for the hospice that has provided her with great care and respite in the last few months - and she was transferred there today from hospital. Mat has been growing his beard for nearly a year to raise funds and the last time that he shaved was on New Years Day... He today has reached an impressive 92% of his target and I am hoping that we can get him to 100% before Christmas - if you could spare a few £'s I would be extremely grateful as will Mat, Joan and the rest of the people who are helped daily by the wonderful staff of Willow Wood.
Here is what Mat looks like today - the beard was dyed white for the festive season
there is also a facebook group
Thank you for taking the time to read their story
Crafting will resume in the next few days
