Just another quick post from me to say lots of huge thank yous to all of you who donated to the the Moonlight Walk. I’d love to write to you all individually – and I might yet when I get the time – but in the meantime I hope you won’t mind a group thank you. I’d especially like to say thanks to the people who don’t know Ben and I very well or haven’t seen us in years – it’s really generous of you to give of your hard earned cash for our cause.
I’d also like to thank Janine and Lizzie for making the walk such a jolly experience and for getting their friends and families in on the fundraising. Lizzie should have a special fanfare of her own for completing the walk while being thirty-four weeks pregnant – what a woman!
I’m just blown away by how much we’ve raised – £1,565 at the last count – amazing! Last time I can remember collecting money for charity was when I was dragging a battered sponsor form around, pestering friends’ mums and neighbours for their 50p’s for the school fun run (making me sound very old and rather slack on the fundraising for that matter) so raising this much money with a bare minimum of pestering has come as quite a shock. Thank you all very very much.
Pilgrims really is a great cause – we were there again yesterday visiting the doctor – unlike the rushed appointments with the doctors in London where you always feel like you have to speak as quickly as possible to squeeze everything in, we have relaxed half hour plus appointments where we can talk calmly and in detail about all the things that the high powered consultants would probably find a bit dull anyway (but are so important for us) like fatigue, sleeplessness, pain relief etc. We count ourselves as very fortunate indeed at the moment with the team of doctors looking after Ben between St Georges’s, Canterbury Hospital and Pilgrims. And fortunate to have so many good friends and family to support us – all of you.
P.S. Really not nagging (honest!) but if you’d been meaning to donate to the Moonlight Walk but hadn’t got round to it, you still can (until November I think) – just go to www.justgiving.com/Sally-Edge
