Help To Have & To Hold Grow

Help To Have & To Hold Grow

To raise funds to help To Have & To Hold secure a floral studio in a beautiful local converted barn

We did it!

On 22nd Oct 2017 we successfully raised £1,170 of £800 target with 37 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

Never Ever did I think i'd reach my target, but with a lot of support from amazing people I have... so Crowdfunder has challenged me to stretch it - with just 2 days to go!!!
This afternoon I went to look at a 'light' industrial unit, Just off from the Priors Hall development - Perfect location, literally between home and school!
There is a plan in the pipeline to share this 'unit' with another school Mum who runs a very sparkly craft business too - which would be just perfect as its a little above my price range for rent - however it is literally a shell - a very dirty 'Blank' canvas if you will - so will need some TLC... But as 2 very creative ladies I reckon we can pull it off and turn it into an amazing studio space - Pinterest has taken a hit!
This is where the 'stretch' funds would be super helpful in being put towards making it a CLEAN suitable and usable space... <3

Over the last 5 years I have grown not only my business but my skills that go along with it, I am now at the stage where I have outgrown working from home and need more space in a dedicated work area. This will enable me to work more time and cost effectively and  without the constraints of my limited work space and storage i will be able to offer a wider range of wedding and event services. - Also of course removing rhe temptation of little fingers 'helping'  and the dog drinking my coffee!

I have a pretty full on family life at home with a vivacious 5 year old (who is going on 15!) and a 4 year old with complex medical and behavioral issues, my work has become my 'thing' away from all the medical appointments and therapies and working for myself means i have the flexibility to organise my work around hospital stays etc... To have a real dedicated work space for To Have & To Hold would be an absolutely HUGE step in not only the growth of my business but also in terms of me realising me dreams.

Through Crowd funding with YOUR help I am aiming to raise £800 which would cover the deposit and first months rent for a work space/studio in beautiful converted barn , which is conveniently located just a few miles from home amd my children's school and nursery so i can be on hand for emergencies. This would enable me to put the maximum amount of work hours in with no time taken up by travelling. 

Thank you for taking an interest in my plan and reading so far, should you choose to support my business growth I have created thank you packages for various levels of pledges, which all of course include that Warm fuzzy feeling you deserve for helping me on the way to achieving my dream!
