Oh and a collection for Claire Throssell raised £157.78!!!
The total for the raffle was totted up on the night at £1106... but I bagged it all up and found £1234.00 - always better when it's up rather than down. So that is split between Yorkshire Cat Rescue and The Well. x
It's a family affair setting everything up. There are a LOT of goody bags to fill... with loads of stuff kindly donated by Yorkshire Tea, My Trusty sunflower cream, Aunt Bessie, Bahlsen Biscuits, Walkers Shortbread... then we have pens and pads (stationery - compulsory) the wonderful bags themselves and some great Tea t-owls. It was owl-heavy...
And the WH Smith girls had even bedecked the bookshop table with owls too!
and my lovely Team Milly ladies gave me a beautiful owl mug and the MOST GORGEOUS BROLLY EVER... with owls on it also. And a cheque for the Claire Throssell fund.
Here are some pictures from the night. Lots of people contributed to Claire's bucket and we raised £1109.00 for Yorkshire Cat Rescue and The Well, which is a therapy centre for cancer patients in Barnsley. It was the best launch yet. The raffle does go on a bit, but there is a lot to get through. I couldn't do it without my team of ladies...
This gorgeous trio are my essentials - Isabelle, Phyllis and Amelia - they're fabulous.
Someone sent me this...4 launch years... 4 hairdos!
So here's the gallery... we had a great time, I think it shows.
Mum caught up with someone she used to work with!
Until next year, folks! Thank you all xxxxx
