You can find our Just Giving page for the charity raffle here - www.justgiving.com/fundraising/curatedmakerscharityraffle
Collaborating in this way, at this time, has been one giant community effort and I thank everyone for backing it and getting together to make this happen. This is the first time I have fundraised via Curated Makers and I cannot wait to do it all again in the future one day.
The funds will go directly to the charity and will help support many areas within the Manchester NHS hospitals including those directly on the front line, to providing vital equipment, to paying for research into lifesaving treatments, enhancing the lives of patients and workforce across all Manchester hospitals.
We're all so very grateful for the work of the NHS and wanted to raise as much for the Manchester Foundation Trust as possible to help in their efforts to keeping us all safe and looking after themselves and their health too. It has been highlighted many a time, that technically we shouldn't need to raise funds for our wonderful NHS, but unfortunately in the times we all see ourselves in, they need all the help they can get. Their work provides us all a safe haven when we need it most, and these funds will be a direct boost.
So THANK YOU, for entering our charity raffle, and consequently together raising this amazing amount of money.
