Craft fair update

Posted by stuff4sam on December 6, 2006

We said that we would share news about the craft fair. Well the good news is that the money keeps coming in. Sales of left over Christmas cards, scaves and bags are filling up the coffers and bring the current total to £900! Amazing! We will carry on selling cards and festive items up until the end of term so watch this space for a final total soon.

Here is a sample of what we had on the table at the start of the sale:

  • 14 scarves
  • 25 knitted flowers
  • 3 plants
  • 11 wooden doorstops
  • 18 handmade bags
  • 200 handmade cards
  • 15 Christmas decorations
  • 12 necklaces
  • 5 bracelets
  • 7 pairs of earrings 
  • assorted smellies, books, CDs and bric-a-brac
  • 10 decorated dog bowls
  • 12 painted glass vases
  • 10 new audio books
  • 6 large cakes and 80 assorted individual cakes, muffins and biscuits
  • and 8 cuddly toys!

Huge thanks to all who made something for the sale and helped to raise such a spectacular amount of money.

Donna who missed the sale is selling her lovely earrings on eBay. A perfect gift for Christmas! She is donating the proceeds to stuff4sam so get bidding!

News from Sam’s Dad

Posted by stuff4sam on December 6, 2006

Things have been busy recently. After a few days in hospital for routine monitoring (which was horrible for us but Sam seemed to enjoy himself (!)) , we went down to Devon to a children’s hospice for a few days. It was a bit of a military operation to move Sam and his equipment but really worth it to get some sea air!

Sam is so so well at the moment which I absolutely put it down to him exercising using the bike. We are just thrilled that he is so well. He just seems more alert and energetic than ever. The last cycle he did was on Saturday and he did 2.8 miles. The people monitoring Sam say he is doing really really well – so everything is looking brilliant.

The buggy and bike are the two pieces of equipment that have helped Sam so so much. It has meant him freedom to be mobile and given back his health. We can’t believe you have done so much for him and still want to do more. You really have to understand how much this means to us.
