Default Charity hair shave

I have a week until my shave. So far I have raised nearly £1300. I have half a page spread in the local newspaper I'm feeling very proud of what I am doing for this charity

Thank you Sarah.

So glad you got the books and thanks for remembering today.

Hope today goes well and that you have a hat for laters as it is rather nippy today

Trish. One of very close friends won your book. Her husband sat reading a few last night at the party. Hr said wow he wants to read it all. It made him very emotional and when I showed him how happy I was that someone close to me won it due to the date his wife cried and said she will cherish it. Then their friend asked if he could read it after. Yesterday for me was glorious, hope for you it was of memories. I'm glad u contacted me I feel I have a friend now that understands. Your amazing love Sarah

Bless you Sarah

It's lovely that your very close friend won the book and that others are asking to read it. When I get posts/feedback like yours with people's reaction it makes all the hard work and emotion that went into creating the book worth it.

I work in Mental Health now as a Clerk who sits in on MH Tribunals. I often wonder if people would section me if they knew about all the spooky things that happen or have happened in my life that cannot be explained conventionally. They would probably not believe me... See link below for an Angelversay blog I did a while back.

COINCIDENCE OR SIXTH SENSE?

I have no doubt that it was more than coincidence that the book remained within the HD network as it were, and that those close to you will be getting a third party take on HD and just how complex and devastating it can be for all the different players.

I am so glad yesterday was glorious. I hope there were lots of photos etc taken and maybe HDA can run a feature in their next Newsletter?

The funds raised will be very welcome and the awareness potential will have been priceless!

My day was quiet (as I like it now) although I was doing a bit of a tweetfest for the latest Angelversary blog

I'm glad too that we have been able to connect. You are a star for doing so much for the cause
