Silent Auction Fundraising for Alzheimer’s Society

Silent Auction – Bid Now!

I’ve been doing a lot of walking recently. That’s because my partner, Gary & I are doing a 26 mile trek raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society.

All donations are gratefully received, and you can donate here.

As a part of our fundraising, I have had a very generous donation from Kim Horrocks, a lovely customer and friend, of a £30  Bagladybird Learn to Sew Gift Voucher.

I’ve upped the value of the voucher to £35 and you can bid on it in a Silent Auction.

You can bid by the deadline of 10am Tuesday 30th August – just send me an email to

Get your bids in now for the Silent Auction!

The winning bidder will get a £35 Bagladybird Gift Voucher valid for 2 years, which can be used to book either one to one lessons or Sewing School courses/workshops in Bawtry.

£35 will get you…

And remember by bidding, you’re helping us to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society which supports dementia patients and their loved ones.

Or you can donate here

We will be Trekking 26 miles around Stonehenge and Salisbury plains on Saturday 3rd September. Gary and I did our final long training walk on Saturday and did a hilly 20 miles. This was pretty tough.

Silent Auction - Trek 26
On our 20 mile training walk

The actual route is 26 miles and 2500 feet. And I chose the Salisbury Plains event because I thought that plains were flat!

We officially started our training plan 16 weeks before the event, but we’ve been in pre-training since January. Gradually upping our time out walking and distances covered until our long walks became our short walks!

We’ve got this!!!
