Still time to Bid…!

This fabulous item we are putting up for sale to the highest bidder, all 100% of the proceeds will go to the fabulous NHS.. As a father with a daughter “Mia” (who some of you have met and seen at fairs) working on the front line of a private nursing home, being told some heart aching stories as she breaks down, is really hard in itself. All I want to do is give her a huge hug but social distancing does not allow me to do this, although we live under the same roof. She loves her job despite these new challenges and caring for others is what she’s good at. She said to me the other day when supplies of PPE were low and I suggested she not go back to work until its in place for your protection, “Dad our residents need care and love more than any other time, if all us carers thought like that then poor residents / patients would suffer even more, its especially hard as it is as they can’t see their loved ones”. Thats my Angel Mia and our little story.

This auction is for all the wonderful carers on the front line, from us to you all. xxx

Email us your bid or click on the item and send us your bid through our website using the blue inquiry button. After we receive your bid you will be given a paddle number.
