£100 and counting!!

Back in March, I opened my Macmillan Fundraising store on Folksy and started selling bits of jewellery to raise funds for my local Macmillan group here on the island!
Lots of fellow folksters offered me beads and other bits and pieces and some even put up items for sale in their stores!

Slowly, the amount raised crept up! My initial aim was to raise £100 before my chemotherapy ended in mid May, but I got there 2 weeks early!

On Wednesday, Frances, from DESIGNED BY FRANCES sold this lovely necklace
and that, along with a small sale from my own store http://www.folksy.com/shops/MacmillanFundraising took the total over the £100 mark!

So on Saturday morning, I handed over a cheque for the sum to the Treasurer of my local group here on the island and she was stunned that I had done this! She was even more stunned when I told her that my next aim is to raise another £100 before my radiotherapy ends in mid July!

I owe a huge thank you to all the lovely people on Folksy who have been helping me in this fundraising effort!
