Just a quick blog to say that our recent stall at All That's Vintage, Craft, Gift and Collectors in Bedhampton went well, despite it being glorious sunshine outside again!
We handed out several business cards and leaflets (from Make ME/LDIFME and IiME), increased local awareness, raised enough to cover the cost of the stall and made roughly £20 for Invest in ME as well!
We also had several great donations, including a portion of the raffle takings from the organisers and a couple of really sweet handmade children's cushions from a local lady (they have little kangaroo pouches for cuddly toys!).
Hopefully, once sunbathing is off the table, we'll see an increase in visitors. And with Christmas coming up these are exactly the kind of gifts people are looking for. Something different, unique and hand-crafted. Little stocking fillers. Christmas cards. All sorts of weird and wonderful crafts, one of a kind items or bespoke/personalised orders.
All in aid of charity! Helping to fund vital biomedical research into M.E!
