✨3rd prize ✨ a family holiday for 5 (worth £450!) ✨

It's a 3 night stay at the stunning Macdonald's Farm, near Padstow in Cornwall!

"Our 5 Star Award winning site is just set back from the rugged coastline. 

We have far reaching country views in a very quiet secluded spot, looking down the valley, disturbed only by the sound of our farm animals. 

Come and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep with an uninterrupted panoramic sky. 

Set in a beautiful campsite with brand new facilities and a unique Glamping Kitchen. 

Our nearest beach is a 10min walk away."


Each prize draw ticket is £15.

The big draw will be on Monday 4th December.

🎟 So if you donate £30, that means you’ve bought 2 tickets.

🎟 If you donate £45, that’s 3 ticket for you.

🎟 Donating £60 will get you 4 tickets….

… you get the idea.

🎟 But if you buy 10 tickets, you get the 11th one free!

Giving Debs as much time with her beautiful kids as possible

Last year, Debbie Morton was diagnosed with Metastatic Osteosarcoma (primary bone cancer). But it spread to her lungs. We were trying to raise funds that allow Debbie to explore vital alternative treatments with integrative doctors + functional medicine (which the NHS sadly could not provide), to allow her as much time with Huey (5) and Joni-Rae (3) as possible.

We’re incredibly pained to share with you that Debbie died on the morning of Friday 27th October.

However, we will still be continuing with our fundraising efforts.

The money raised will go to supporting Debbie’s two young children.

Debbie was incredibly positive about her recovery with these alternative treatments, so we can be consoled in knowing that, at the very least, she passed away with a positive and hopeful heart.

She will be missed my so many of us.

And we want to do the best we can by her to support her little ones.
