Raffle Success!

When you take a little break from blogging, it seems to take just about forever to catch up - but this marks the last and final post on my to-blog list... so here goes!

The Lazy Crafternoons 52 Weeks:52 Crafts Raffle which was graciously hosted at the Magpie's and I
Giant Handmade and Vintage Fair at the MShed on March 25th was a huge success!

Not only did we have nearly 20 prizes donated by a range of fantastic makers and sellers, but the raffle managed to raise a whopping £87.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

That's certainly a nice chunk of change to add to the ever growing fundraising total of the 52 Weeks : 52 Crafts project.  While the donations I collect from e-bay auctions go straight to Macmillan via. the MissionFish auction program, the funds raised at the raffle will be donated directly to the local fundraising team of Macmillan Cancer Support in Bristol.

Just wanted to say a final thank you to all those who donated items and acknowledge them and their winners one last time!

All the winners have been contacted, and arrangements have been made for the prizes to be picked up or posted to the appropriate winners (all postal costs have been covered by Lazy Crafternoons, not deducted from the raffle takings). If any prizes are not claimed by their winners, they will either be given back to the donor or upon their agreements auctioned off as a bonus to the 52 week : 52 craft challenge later this year.
