Thank you to the team for their continued support …..
What a beautiful birthday celebration at the Seraphina holistic centre last Saturday. I attended the event with Isaac and we were greeted by our gorgeous volunteer and supporter Lydia. Lydia knits dollies for us and she had marked the event by knitting a butcher with a string of sausages around his neck, complete with him holding a plate of mash. Isaac immediately fell in love with him and named him William. We then attended our first ever “gong bath” and whilst we had our eyes closed and felt the vibrations move through our bodies, Isaac leant over to stroke my arm. It was a lovely moment between Mum and Son. There are many mediums connected to the centre too and that afternoon I was given a couple of messages. To each their own, but it does bring comfort to think that they never leave us, we just cannot see them. After a glass of fizz to celebrate and chat with friends I was thrilled to win the raffle too. I took it as a gift from Reuben. Home later that day, and the most beautiful double reubow appeared outside our house. Again a sign that he’s close and had been with us most of the day.
Lots and lots of thank you’s this week to share, I don’t know what we would do without you. Thank you’s to Thomas Cook Hyde and Pearl. Thank you’s to Sharon Matthews, Jane Blackford, Andrea McCormack, Auntie Rach, Adele, charlotte & Co in conjunction with Beaverbrooks, all for their run and challenge monies. Thank you’s to Lisa Wilson and Sam Foster. A special thank you to Glossop Cricket club for helping us out whilst our lodge isn’t quite ready. And heartfelt condolences and thank you’s to the family of Mr P Riley. I am always touched by such generous donations from families holding miss in their hearts too. Thank you to our volunteers that have supported many events lately and Good Luck to Jordan Leonard and Mollie Nuttall on their forthcoming challenge. Monies also this week from OZ fitness and Darwin escapes. Thank you all.
Special thank you’s to a a lovely lady from a trust that we met a while ago. It was great to meet with you Linda Miles and thank you for your grant received last week.
This week we have an action packed week and look forward to a interview with Granada reports, our trustee meeting, a treasure hunt with Barclaycard, a new charity of the year meeting with Anchor, a neverland catch up with Princess Stella, the removal of a very costly gas meter at the lodge, a meeting with a foundation that have supported us in the past , a team taking on 15 of Snowdonia’s peaks, Rachel’s great north swim and The Gee cross fete.
We are also pleased to share that we are moving offices here in Ashton under lyne to Suite 4. After much thought and with the lodge opening this year, we decided that we would also stay in Ashton under Lyne as that is where we also support many of our families. We will be moving across the corridor next month and our address will remain, but our suite will change to number 4. Suite 4, St Michael’s court, St Michael’s Square, Stamford St central, Ashton under lyne, OL6 6XN. We will also move to Glossop late next month too.
Good luck to our member of parliament David Heyes who is about to vacate his Ashton office and starts his new journey of retirement. A lovely Gentleman, we all wish him the very best of love and luck.
