I love fundraising, it is one of my hobbies. Planning things and raising funds always cheers me up.
I've made lots of good friends through fundraising, especially on twitter. Hopefully the funds I have raised have also done some good, even if it is just a little.
I've got a number of fundraising projects & plans at the moment.
I'm selling desk calendars with my poems for Young Epilepsy.
I'm also selling mugs with my Leadership poem for Leeds Children's Hospital Appeal.
If you would like either please do contact me via this blog or on twitter @AdsthePoet
Mum is helping me organise a "Bake Off" competition in my village. My village friends
will decorate cup cakes and cakes, with prizes for the best designs for people of all ages.
We will then auction the cakes with proceeds going to Young Epilepsy. There is already
a lot of support for the idea in the village and I haven't even set the day yet.
Last year for Children In Needs I auctioned me writing a poem for the winner. It was very popular and the winner @kirstie79 loved my poem Happiness, so I'm thinking of doing the same this year.
I'm also looking ahead to next Spring when the weather is better. I have hundreds of books, so I'm thinking of holding a book sale for @Readwell in my lane. I also have lots of teddy bears so I could include some of them too.
Sometimes being in hospital is really tough, but planning and organising these activities really helps me get through tough times.
Thank you everyone who has supported my fundraising. You are superstars.
