And the winner of the two skeins of lovely Moonwalk Exquisite Twist is....
Congratulations, Michelle Ainslie! If you could get in touch, I'll get the yarn posted off to you at the soonest opportunity.
And massive thanks to everyone who participated - we raised over £275 thanks to your enormous generosity, helping the Fizzy Floozies smash their original target by raising almost £3,500 towards breast cancer charities.
We were all overwhelmed by one donation in particular - you know who you are - thank you SO much. And to every one of you who took the time to donate.
I'm super proud of all nine of my friends who completed the 26 miles on Saturday night. What an amazing achievement!
And if you want to read more about where the money raised goes, these are some of the charities that Walk the Walk supports.
MoonWalk your way to winning yarn (without taking a step) April 27 2017, 2 Comments
Want to win two skeins of Exquisite Twist in the specially devised MoonWalk colourway and support this breast cancer charity?
On May 13th, nine of my hero friends will be power walking over 26 miles through the streets of London in an effort to raise money for breast cancer. They've all been training so hard - walking for miles and miles in the evenings and at weekends, when they could have been doing other things, like raising a glass of fizz with their feet up.
I'd love to be able to help them to get to their target of £2000, and they're very nearly there, so I'm offering 2 skeins of merino/cashmere/nylon to tempt you into donating a minimum of £2 to their fund-raising page in order to enter the lucky dip competition.
I will pick the winner at random on May 15th and announce who it is here on the blog so good luck! I'll post it worldwide, so don't be shy to enter.
All you need to do is:
1. Go to the Fizzy Floozies fund-raising page here.
2. Make your donation - please mark it with SQ so that I can tell if you've entered.
Feel free to leave the girls a good luck message to spur them on on the night.
And that's it! Best of luck to you and to Michelle Stevens, Sandra Benton, Karen Neumann, Karen Symes, Katie Lewis, Leanne Holland, Amanda Drane, Clare Stewart and Kate Flitter!
