Welcome to our Christmas Craft Sale 2019 for Shine Cancer Support.
Shine exists exclusively to support adults in their 20s, 30s and 40s who have experienced a cancer diagnosis. their website is here, they do amazing work.
There is never a good time to have cancer, but they recognise that younger adults face different issues than their older or younger counterparts – and that many of these are not dealt with by traditional cancer support charities and services. They work hard to ensure young adults living with cancer can access the help and support that they need in a way that suits their lifestyle. They do this through a range of activities including lunches and drinks evenings, beach walks, multi-day getaways, workshops, online networking, and mentoring. The overall aim is to create a confident, supportive and empowered community of young adults living with cancer.
They gave the most enormous invaluable support to one of our own – Chrissie (also known as LeslieKnope by many)
We will donate one third of all raised to Shine, using two thirds to support our own projects and keep them running, ambitious and inclusive. So every penny we can raise will go to help others, we hope you will support us, either by crafting, buying or even maybe both! Thank you so so much. x
We are aiming to make and sell small/lightweight Christmas craft items, and to keep postage costs to a minimum we ask that ideally anything made can be sent on to a buyer in a large envelope. We are open to larger items too obviously, that is just a guide. Some suggestions for you, but we are very open to others too…
- Stocking fillers, although obviously Father Christmas is REAL, this is just to help.
- Christmas tree decorations, bunting, garlands, general decorations. Always very popular, as are totally bonkers quirky things, yes we are thinking gin wreaths, woolly slugs and sock pigs, who knew??! 😀
- Cute cuddly things
- Small gifts – Little bags, purses, brooches, hair accessories, key rings, gift bags, tags,
- Clothing items such as gloves, hats, scarves, – if making clothing PLEASE inc the ball band or let us know so we can pass this info on to those who buy. xxx
- Lovely lovely things!
Woolly, fabric, embroidered, beaded, all crafty crafts welcome!!
