“I would like to say a massive thank you to Charlotte Walker at Etre Belle, Spot my Style, All Fired Up, Red Apple Children’s Clothing, Temple Spa, Kids Lingo and Lyndsey who runs Mums In Business Association who all supported us on the day, plus our amazing volunteers and my team at SK eight who manned stalls and put their face painting and henna skills to good use. Plus all the local businesses including Equity Housing colleagues who donated raffle and Tombola prizes.
Finally, I’m so proud of Jayne for organising such a wonderful day and raising this amount of money, it’s unbelievable and we can’t wait for the next one.”
