Our original thread for lovely Berry is here……
We were so very sorry to learn that back in January this year, Mitchell81’s beloved daughter Kate-Lynne had passed away, she was just twelve. Some of you may well remember Mitchell from the SN boards, her thread is here.
Much love to the whole family, we are thinking of your beautiful daughter.
Keeping her spirit alive, her family have set up the amazing charity Kate-Lynne’s Wish and we would very much like to help them. The charity’s aim is to help local families (in the Deeside, Aberdeenshire area) who have disabled children or children with additional needs who need extra help to fund equipment and things to make their lives easier. Please visit/like/share/support their page, and also have a look at their website which is here.
So this is where we come in. We are offering a rare opportunity to bid for a Woolly Hug. Kate-Lynne’s family call her their Pink Princess so it seemed fitting we should use as many shades of pink as we could find. The Hug is 110 cm by 142cm which is 43″ by 56″. It is made in our usual wools so machine washable, just dry flat or draped over something.
Perfect size for a child or a sofa. It is snuggly and made with love.
Our Kate-Lynne’s Wish Auction will run over 4 days through an event on our Facebook page MNWoollyHugs, if not on FB bids may also be made via text to our special hotline. Please PM for the number. ALL BIDS MUST BE POSTED DIRECTLY ON THE WALL OF OUR FB EVENT PAGE OR TEXTED AND WE WILL ADD THEM THERE. Please do not post bids here they will not count. We will keep this thread updated of any progress.
The auction will close at 9pm on Friday 14th June. Any late bids will not count! It may take us a few minutes after to confirm the winning bid as we will need to look at bids on the page and any by text. In the event of a tie we will contact the two concerned and give them one more chance to make a bid. In the event of a further tie, we will draw one of their names from a hat.
We know we have our fabulous Band of International Blanketeers, and we are very happy to send the Hug overseas, but bids must be made in Sterling, or we will get in a right pickle. Ideally payment will be via Paypal straight into the KLW account, we can give you their details, but we will happily talk about other ways to pay too.
So please join us, there are photos on the Facebook event page and we will post more as we go along. You will agree the money is going to a very worthwhile charity. Thank you
Pistey and Knotty
