Who wants to win a bear?

So...it's time for the first fundraising raffle of the year! For the first time ever I am offering you the chance to win a custom made bear worth £65. Whether it be made from your children's baby clothes, your wedding dress, or clothes belonging to a lost loved one....the choice is yours. Or you could just choose your favourite fabric and send me that instead.

I'm sure you all know by now what my bears are like, but here's a small selection to give you an idea what yours could be like!

This raffle will be raising money for Project Trust, and in particular, a lovely young lady named Leah. Leah has been selected to spend a year in India with the charity, while she is there she will be teaching English to the local people. In order for her to participate in this amazing opportunity she has to raise £5000 by August. I am really inspired by teenagers like Leah who do good work like this. They certainly don't get as much recognition as they deserve, so I am hoping we can help to raise a nice big chunk of the money she needs.

It's very simple to enter. For every £1 you donate, you will get one entry into the raffle. You can donate as much as you like! When you make your donation, please be sure to leave your name as anonymous donations won't be entered into the raffle. Also...very important...please write RAFFLE ENTRY into the message box so we can distinguish your donations from Leah's other fundraising efforts.

So, what are you waiting for? Here's the link where you can donate and enter:

The raffle will close at midnight on 13th March and the winner will be announced here and on my Facebook page soon after. Good luck everyone, and dig deep!
