On October 13, Hepsibar and me, along with RatherBeOnThePiste and TantrumsAndBalloons (I think) will be running a 5K race, as part of the Woolly Hugs team.

We are aiming to raise money for World Child Cancer, the charity for which Woolly Hugs knits (amongst others), and the charity that was nominated by MrsDeVere, in memory and honour of her daughter, Billie.

Pistey's money is being raised through the Woolly Hugs Just Giving page, and Hepsibar and I have our own pages - although the money all goes to the same place in the end.

We would all be incredibly grateful if you could spare a bit of cash to sponsor us.

You can either sponsor us directly, via cheque/cash (just send me a PM for details), or - if it's easier - through our Just Giving pages:

BIWI's page

Hepsibar's page

Pistey/Woolly Hugs' page

Hepsibar and I still have to meet our target, so it would be fab if you would sponsor us!

With very many thanks, and much love

Hope you have dried out, I got home and my DS made me a cuppa and lit the fire. I shall keep him grin
