A Date For Your Diary
If you fancy supporting a good cause my good friend at Sweet Dream Events will be hosting A Garden Party in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. For anyone who is further a field; all throughout June if you place an order for a pair of shoes or buy a piece of artwork or any greeting cards from www,gemmakenward.com , 10% will go to the MacMillan too.
I have first hand experience of the fantastic work the local Macmillan Cancer ward does. My Mother lost her battle with cancer a few years ago now and spent her last month with us at Christchurch Macmillan Centre. I could not fault the work of the nurses who are there toiling away day in day out endeavoring to make sure each and every patient and their families are cared for with lots of love and support.
Without local charity events like this MacMillan simply wouldn't have the funds to create peaceful wards like the one my Mother was on. They wouldn't be able to run the art workshops for patients to give families a little respite for a few hours a week. They certainly wouldn't be able to offer free counselling to families struggling to come to terms with that horrid word 'Cancer' and what it does to a family dynamics.
And aside from the serious undertone to the event it's going to be lots of fun too with the promise of delicious cakes, lashings of tea for a great family day out .
