As most of our blog readers have heard by now, Twin Daddy and I are raising money for two brilliant charities. 
Both charities are very close to our hearts. I have experienced the loss of my mum from ovarian cancer and our twins were born 6 weeks premature and as a result spent 27 days in special care.
Our aim is to raise £2,000 per charity, so that’s a total of £4,000.
We have a number of fundraising ideas bouncing around our heads and our current fundraiser is our charity raffle.
We have over £500 worth of prizes to give away!
The charity raffle started on Thursday, 24th October 2013 so it has been running for almost 3 weeks now. So far we have received 12 entries.
I’ll be honest and admit that I feel a little disappointed by this. I know that if I was to host a competition on my blog for just one of the fabulous prizes we have to offer, we would receive well in excess of 200 entries.
I feel slightly disheartened by this when considering the raffle is for two great charities and it only costs £1.00 per ticket. I hope we can sell a few more tickets and raise some more money for these great charities.
I have sold a number of tickets in work, but most have been sold online. It’s so easy to enter! All you need to do is click here for more information about how to enter.
I am hoping to have more luck at my local baby group, so I’ll keep you updated on this.
So far to date we have raised £203.00 for Cancer Research UK and £226.00 for Bliss. This means in total we have raised £429.00.
Fundraising Lady and Children’s Christmas Party
Two weeks ago I met with a lovely lady from Cancer Research UK who has given me some excellent fundraising ideas.
On Sunday, 22nd December 2013 Twin Daddy and I are hosting a Childrens Christmas Party in aid of the two above charities. 
People’s generousity continues to amaze me. We have managed to hire a room free for our party and we have also managed to hire a bouncy castle and arrange music again both free of charge. 
Tickets cost £3.00 per child and £1 per adult. All proceeds go to charity.

If you live in or around Cardiff and would like to come to our Childrens Christmas Party, you can read more about it by clicking here. If you’d like further information please email me: twinmumanddad@virginmedia.com

Thank you,
Twin Mummy and Daddy
