Giving something back.

Good evening everyone, 
I hope you are keeping well. 
So sorry that I haven’t been around but Karl’s sister Heidi, had 
an accident on Sunday and has been in ITU, so we have been with her. 
Unfortunately she passed away last night, bless her , she was only 46.
Obviously this has hit Karl, the boys and our family very hard. 
It is times like this that make you stop, and think. 
I have to say that the nursing staff at Hope hospital were amazing and so caring. 

So in a way this is the perfect time to tell you about a retreat in May. 
I am so proud to have been asked to teach workshops for Caitlin to support Alder Hey hospital. 
I will be giving my time etc free. 
Here is some information about it. 

Hi everyone - here are the details regarding the Crafty Weekend with the wonderful Jo Rice and arranged by Caitlin Jones in support of Alder Hey Children's Hospital.  Please see below the date of the TICKET RELEASE.

The Workshops will be held on the 9th and 10th of May 2020 at The Whitehall Hotel, Darwen, Lancashire, BB3 2JU - Telephone number 01254 701595.  If you are wanting accommodation- please contact the Hotel directly.   It truly is a superb venue.  NB - if you are ringing the Hotel please state 'for the Crafty Weekend with Caitlin Jones' - Dave will then know which Event it is for and will have all the necessary information to hand.

So, here we go - the information you've all been waiting for:-

9th May - For all you who love LAVINIA STAMPS*
10th May - For all of you who love AALL & CREATE*
(* - please note: Jo Rice has kindly agreed to carry out two days of Workshops, so if you only want to do a specific day please make sure that you book for the right Workshop and day, of course you can book for both days but make sure you state that when booking)

The price for each Workshop is £35.00 (which is NON-REFUNDABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE) per person, per day - this includes the Workshop Ticket,  free Stamp (each day with a Stamp from the Workshop Brand that day)!and Lunch (please note - you cannot take your own food into the Venue due to Food Safety regulations within the Hotel - however, The Whitehall Hotel has given us a brilliant Lunch option for less than you would pay at certain food outlets 😁).

All profits will be going to Alder Hey Children's Hospital - this is an Event arranged by Caitlin Jones as a thank you for treatment and care she received as a little one and a thank you from all those who have experienced the wonderful care and treatment from Alder Hey Children's Hospital.  I think you will agree that the Workshop costs are superb compared to other Workshops most of us will have attended 😊

For those attending ANY of the Workshops- there will be a Party Night on the Saturday night (theme to be decided 😂) - My Mate Dave is sooo looking forward to that 😉

TICKETS - The Tickets will be released at 7pm on Friday the 6th of March and will be on a first come basis.  This ensures that everyone has the same chance of securing Tickets for this hugely anticipated Event in support of Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

On behalf of Caitlin, Jo, myself and Cindie and all at Alder Hey Children's Hospital THANK YOU for all your support and we can't wait to see you all in May xx💗🦋 Jo Rice xx🤗

I really hope some of you can come and join us. 

Take care everyone 
Much love and hugs

Such a sad time for the family.

I'm sure the Alder Hey workshops will be a great success and raise much needed money for a good cause.
