Charity Auction: Can You Help Save A Life?

Desperate appeal – can you donate an item for our charity auction?

STOP PRESS: The auction site is now LIVE – start the bidding ladies and gentlemen!

Screenshot 2015-03-19 13.36.24You may have already read the heartbreaking story of Samantha Beaven, local mum diagnosed with cervical cancer which was discovered after going into premature labour with her youngest daughter. Sadly this has now spread to the brain and her only option is a cutting edge expensive treatment in Mexico. Her plea for help has been featured in national and local newspapers, plus she has a website and facebook page where the family are keeping everyone up to date on her progress and needs.

So far the campaign is edging towards the £60k mark. There’s been some fab local fund-raising events and donations from the community and further afield – but more money is desperately needed and you can help. Sam is desperate to stick around and ensure her girls have a mum growing up.

Now parent bloggers are coming together with their finely honed digital skills to organise an on-line auction to raise funds. Each business donating will get free promotion on our networks which include, The Mumington Post, Snoozeshade and many, many more – we estimate around 30k+ followers where the auction and each donation will be shared by this powerful on-line community.
