Mini Auction 

Last Night we held a “mini” auction to raise funds for a very special little girl named Connie. We raised (with your help and support) an incredible £1800!!! 🥂🥂 Well our “mini” auction turned into a rather fantastic auction when kind people heard what we were raising funds for and donated auction lots, raffle prizes, and their money very generously- thank you so much! 🙌🏻 You see the treatment for Connie comes at a hefty cost, and so in the grand scheme maybe this is a ripple.... but... if enough of us make a ripple then that’s the beginning of a wave 🌊 #deep What’s next? 7 of us Freefalling at 125mph, jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft on Friday 26th July. We are fighting for you Connie 💕💕💕💕💕
