Doing Something Nice: Jayne’s Charity Raffle for Barnardo’s

Ok, so when I was at High School, one of my main activities in my spare time was raising money for charity. I was on the board of a environmental project and helped raised funds for so many good causes, it occurred to me this weekend, that is has been a long while since I did my bit for charity. So, inspired by the beautiful Nicoletta of Nicoletta’s Beauty Space, I decided to do my bit!

Nicoletta did an amazing job last year, raising over £1000 for Breast Cancer Research through holding a blog raffle, so inspired by this lovely lady, I’m going to see what I can do! I think Nicoletta did a great job of showing how simple it can be to make a difference to a worthy cause, plus you can have a lot of fun in the process.

So, I have chosen to fundraise for Children’s Charity, Barnardo’s.
