Great Yarn Giveaway - final update

Isn't it lovely to see sunshine and blue skies and even better that it's all happening on a Bank Holiday weekend too?! I've been busy packing up parcels for the past few days, getting ready to add addresses to send out to all the prize winners in my Great Yarn Giveaway. It closed on April 30th with an utterly amazing grand total raised of £8150. I feel very overwhelmed by it and incredibly blessed to have had so much support from the woolly community to do something so amazing in memory of my lovely Mr JK. Thank you so much if you donated. Every single pound raised will help to fight against heart disease. 

My spare bedroom currently looks like this...

Winners were selected by random number generator this week and all have been emailed. I'm still waiting to hear back from quite a few so that I can post prizes off, so please do check your inbox and junk mail folder just in case!

I shall quite miss my giveaway as it's kept me busy every day since the start of February. Once all the prizes are in the post, I will breathe a huge sigh of relief and start planning my next fundraising idea! And I've got plenty of knitting and crochet to keep me occupied too.

Enjoy the sunshine this weekend, whatever you have planned. xxx

Hi Helen
I think that it will take you an incredibly long time to label and post all of those parcels; you will have to be so organised. I do hope that you get to spend some time doing something nice this weekend and not just addressing parcelsthough.
I have just run a half marathon so I am hoping to take it a bit easier for the rest of the weekend.
Take care

Congratulations on your brilliantly successful fund raising, Helen. You should be very proud of what you have achieved, and your dear husband would be so proud of you, too. I hope you get some time away from addressing parcels, so you can enjoy some of this glorious sunshine.
