confessions of a fabric obsessive

October – Breast Cancer Awareness UPDATE

As you may remember, in October I said that I would donate 50p for every purchase from my etsy shops (clairebearshop and handmadebyclairebear) to Breast Cancer Care to support their work.

I have since paid in the money I raised through this (all £1.50 of it), and this is the lovely e-mail I got in return:

In case you can’t quite read it, this is what it says:


Dear Claire,

Thank you so much for paying in £1.50 to Breast Cancer Care today.

Your contribution will help us provide our free services to people affected by breast cancer whenever they need our help in the days, months and years ahead. Please pass on our thanks to everyone who helped make your fundraising a success, we are very grateful for their kindness in supporting your fundraising activities.

The details we have for the money you paid in today are as follows:

Claire Jervis, UK.


Transaction Reference: *****

Unless you requested otherwise, we’ll write to you at the address above to confirm safe receipt of your money and to record our formal thanks for your support. Thank you so much for helping us to make a difference to people affected by breast cancer across the UK, today.

(Needless to say, I opted not to receive an acknowledgement letter)

Thank you to those who bought from my shops during October, thank you and I hope that you are happy with your purchases.

I intend to do this again next year, hopefully I will raise more as this is a cause that is close to my heart.
