Good morning, I hope you are all well and looking forward to some warmer weather today. Fingers crossed the Met Office got it right as some warm sunshine is just the tonic I am sure we all need as we head towards Spring. I am sure it will be lovely to get outside and do some gardening or play with the children later, after getting some work done. We'll be enjoying some birthday fun as Lucy is eleven today, where does the time go?!
Today I want to share with you news about Yummy Mummy Week in aid of CLIC Sargent. For the past six years mums across the UK have organised events during one week in March to raise funds for CLIC Sargent. This charity supports children living with cancer and as a charity relies on our generosity. Yummy Mummy Week is a fantastic idea allowing mothers to get together to raise money for children with cancer. The most popular events are afternoon tea parties, nearly new sales and cake sales but you can organise any event, maybe a crafty coffee morning or an exhibtion? Perhaps you will choose to organise a more extravagant Yummy Mummy party complete with pamper treatments. No event is too small, every penny raised will help.
Everyday ten families are told that their child has cancer and I know I would be devastated to be told any of my children were incredibly poorly. I count my blessings everyday that I have five healthy chidlren. CLIC Sargent is the only charity offering all round support to families with a child with cancer. They provide Play Specialists and specialist nurses to visit children at home, they support families whilst a child is in hospital, they help survivors and are there when the news is not so positive.
I am, as yet, undecided what to do for Yummy Mummy Week. What are you going to do? Sign up today for your fundraising pack
Be sure to let me know if you are organising an event for Yummy Mummy Week and I will help spread the word.
Have a lovely day in the sunshine
