On Saturday 14th December 2013 I got up early on my day off and headed to Bromley Intu centre to Christmas wrap and raise awareness on Make A Wish Foundation.
It was a lovely morning, the morning crew consisted of me, Amanda, Michael and Claire. Plus the awesome Emma from Make A Wish. It really was good fun getting festive, wrapping presents and raising awareness. Very early on in the morning we met a lovely woman who looked like she’d seen a ghost. Her son had benefited from Make A Wish Foundation and she was eager to give back. Her story was both beautiful and heart-breaking. Emma was awesome with her. Later on, we met others who had benefited from the charity and a lady who had helped grant a wish.
A truly enlightening day that I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope to do more for Make A Wish Foundation next year. Today I found out we raised an awesome £550. I am still hoping some kind friends, family, colleagues and followers will add to my personal page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1
So on Saturday 14th December 2014 I shall be giving up some of my time to wrap presents in a local shopping centre for Make A Wish Foundation. I decided that I want to raise some extra money for this amazing charity. So I have set up a Just Giving page http://www.justgiving.com/Hayley-Thorpe1
so my friends, family, colleagues and followers can help me support the charity. I would love to wrap all of your presents for you but I just won’t see all of you, seeing as we all live in different places.
I am sorry for my silence again…I have been a busy bee but I hope to check in with you all whenever I can. Thanks again to all the wonderful and supportive friends I have made just on WordPress. It’s been a testing time but I won’t be beaten by negativity and pure cruelness. I really do appreciate whatever you can spare I have set myself a target of £100 without whatever I get on the day and I already have £15.00.
Anyway I shall love you and leave you with a quote that I believe we should all be saying to ourselves.
Start every day with a new hope, leave bad memories behind and have faith for a better tomorrow.
