Jane's Jottings

My web site wizards are jumping from a plane!

New Picture
Top to Bottom: Ben and Nigel

I am sure you can imagine that with Bill working through his radiotherapy at the moment, this is a subject very dear to my heart and I am very pleased to tell you all about it. On the 4th August 2010, Nigel and Ben, who work at the very complicated end of www.thecrossstitchguild.com are skydiving with the world famous Red Devils to raise money for Maggie’s Cotswolds Cancer Caring Centre and want to raise at least £1000.

I would have hoped that they would have had more sense but if you look at the picture above you can see there is simply no hope of them ever growing up!

About Maggies:

A Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre is a place to turn to for help with any of the problems, small or large, associated with cancer.

Maggie’s Cotswolds will open this Summer in Cheltenham and serve the 3 counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire where 35,000 people are living every day with cancer. Once open, there will be a whole host of free services on offer to anyone affected by cancer including carers, family and friends. Counselling – 1:1 and group, group courses, benefits advice, library and information. And all of this in a homely, comfortable and uplifting environment created specially for Maggie’s by the architect, Sir Richard MacCormac.

Note about Just Giving website:

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – we will raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

The boys tell me they are happy to take dollars too!

I am hoping for some pictures of the big day which I will share with you!

Happy stitching
