Cathy Jalal Bonnard, of Garden Glamping, Kelly Simmons, of Pink Peony Weddings, and Vicky Copson-Garman, of the Jolly Hucksters mobile bar company, held a prize draw before Christmas and hope to inspire others to support causes which may be struggling.

Kelly said: “I am really proud to have been part of the giveaway in aid of fundraising for breast cancer. It’s a subject close to my heart and we were proud to contribute towards this fantastic giveaway at a time when fundraising is so difficult.”

Cathy said: "We wanted to give something back to a good cause, so we decided to choose a charity close to our hearts; we all know people who have had breast cancer.

Top row: the main prize won by Jane Warmington - a pink gin afternoon tea for her and five friends, with vintage crockery hire from Pink Peony Weddings, afternoon tea from Rambling Rose Kitchen, a themed picnic set up from Garden Glamping and pink gin donated by Jolly Hucksters Mobile Bar. Then, moving clockwise: pink sweet hampers from Sweetest Memories; a collection of handmade cards from Pearl and Pickle Etsy shop; perfume bauble from Scentsational Beauty & More; sweets selection from Enterprising All-Sorts; pink Christmas stocking from Sophie’s Creations; pink glittery gin glasses from the Studio @ IDCardIt.

“Charities have been suffering because of Covid-19. They haven’t been able to fundraise on the same scale, while there will be some women who have had their treatment delayed.”

Cathy would like to thank all the businesses who donated prizes, and everyone who bought tickets.
