I'm posting this here as well as in the gather forum so that more people have a chance of seeing it.

At the Robin Hole gather we had a sale of work and a raffle with the money going to Weston Park Cancer Hospital where Pat was treated. We also added in the last bit of the contingency fund (ie what we put on one side if we need more milk etc) and I have also had a couple of donations from Clare W and Susan (Elder).

Today I finally rang the hospital and spoke to their fundraising team and arranged for £120 to be transferred. They were absolutely delighted with it and asked me to pass on their very grateful thanks to all those who contributed. I will also be emailing Steve to let him know.

As a group we also made 11 teddy bears which are shortly setting out on their journey to Cambodia and a life of much hugging.

Thankyou to everyone who contributed in whatever way and an extra thankyou to Vikki the queen of teddy face embroidery!

Just to let you know I finally delivered the teddies to Pat's friend Lynne, who is going to Cambodia on Thursday. She was very touched, and a little bit emotional, and asked me to pass on her thanks.
