Raising money - and awareness

In December 2017 Claire raised an astounding £1100 by organising an indoor boot sale.

"I held an indoor boot sale in our local hall," Claire wrote. "I sold 25 selling tables. Supported by my wonderful friends and family, we had a cafe for visitors selling filled rolls, home baking, teas and coffee. We had a raffle, a few games and face painting. There was something for everyone! Despite the snow we had a great turnout on the day. "My little girl Jess is now 6 months old and I suffered with HG from week 5 until birth,Like so many women while suffering with this, I had to battle with doctors to get treatment. To this day, I still don’t understand how they are able to leave women in such an awful state. I hope when my wee girl is older that women won’t have to go through what we had/have to. And I truly believe that every little bit helps,"

Congratulations to Claire on her brilliant and very successful idea and to thank her for the money she raised.
