A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to a blogger event organised by one of my good friends, Carrie-Anne. It had a rainbow and unicorn theme and she did such a great job at organising it all and getting everything together! I arrived a bit earlier to help her set up. It was held in a really homely bar in Leeds. Brick walls, old sofas and wooden tables complete the candles.
Carrie-Anne also had an amazing idea to get people to bring donations for her to take The Welcome Centre in Huddersfield instead of having an entry fee. The Welcome Centre accepts food donations as well as things such as toiletries, bedding and kitchen equipment which it then passes on to families are who in crisis. It’s a great way to help support local people who are struggling feed their children, or buy every day essentials like toothpaste and shower gel. Carrie-Anne use all the money raised from the raffle to buy more supplies and on her 30th birthday, she took the donations to the centre.
The event was lovely, we got treated to many sweet treats, I got to see some of my best blogging friends and meet some new ones and even though I didn’t win the raffle, I was happy to hear that the money I spent on tickets went towards The Welcome Centre! The goody bag was pretty great, too 🙂
