Rachel's Fabulous ME Awareness Picnic

I haven't posted in ages but I have a few new posts up my sleeve to follow this one. 

Back in August I hosted a picnic in aid of The ME Association. I didn't manage to organise anything for ME awareness day/ week due to the nature of the condition, however, I finally got round to organising an event and I was really pleased with how it went. 

The picnic didn't go quite as planned though.. The gazebo and 'A board' didn't get used as my brother kindly offered his flat to host the picnic, therefore there wasn't room for either of these things. The weather was not good that day, very cold, windy and rainy, so an indoor picnic was much warmer and drier!! 

Lots of people showed up. Many family and friends came to support both me and The M.E Association, which was absolutely brilliant. Altogether I raised £168.83. I was so so happy with this amount. Every bit of fundraising helps. 

Thank you to everyone that donated prizes, (Nails By Zoe, The Thistle, Leanne, Kerri-Marie, Ajay, Mumma. I apologise if you donated a prize and I have forgotten to mention you!) and to everyone that donated on the day AND online. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. 

Take care,

Rachel xxx
