Traveling bands -Where are they ?
Meet Mal and Gwynnie who have set off on their winter travels ! Can anybody tell me where they are ? as you can see they are wearing their mnd wristbands .Meg their Jack Russell- hasn`t quite got the hang of wearing hers yet !!
Some goods news arrived today in the form of a cheque for the sum of £100 for the MNDA -kindly donated by the organizers of the Prestatyn Flower Show,after every show any exhibitors who wish to -can donate their entries, be it flower arrangements or vegetables , cakes or jam- they are then entered into the end of show auction, this is left in the capable hands of Peter Large our local auctioneer and estate agent who has always supported the flower show in this way and who seems to have the knack of encouraging bidders to give generously for the goods on offer raising handsome amounts toward good causes. the monies raised are then split between the several charities of which the flower show supports. Thank you so much -a £100.00 is a brilliant result !
Finally I would just like to say a heart felt thank you to a Mrs Thomas who phoned me when I was on my lunch hour last week after reading the article about Andrew in our local paper, she resides in a nursing home just around the corner from where I live now, she lost her husband to a form of mnd some sixteen years ago-I was very touched by your kindness and understanding
and I did really enjoy our little chat - thank you for your donation, sorry I missed you yesterday - I did pop in to thank you in person but you were having your lunch - [I decided not to disturb you] I will pop in again some time soon !
Please remember this blog will work if you people out there will participate and send in your photos wearing your bands -I look forward to seeing them all !
