Every day we are hit with news of how bad people are, how one person has hurt another and we often think what is actually going on with with us humans?
I wish that the news programmes/sites would share much more good news than they do and talk more about how caring and kind humanity can be and often for nothing in return.
Take this for example.
In October 2012, we lost our little girl Millie. Fast forward 12 months and we’ve set a charity up in her memory and a local hair salon contacts us and tells us that they are planning a fundraiser – a fabulous one at that… they wanted to do a full 24 hour fundraiser where they worked from 12pm one day until 12pm the day after, a full 24 hours and all donations came to Millie’s Trust.
We didn’t know this lady (she’s called Vikki by the way), we hadn’t met her, we hadn’t even spoken to her and she decided that she wanted to do something in Millie’s name.
This is Vikki, say hi!
As it happened, Dan and I had already booked a week away when she had planned it, so we couldn’t attend – but we paid a visit on a return to say thank you.
Roll on the year after and she contacts us again … they want to do it again … unreal!
How amazing though
Here we are now, 6 years down the line and tonight they are taking on the sixth 24 hour fundraiser on behalf of Millie’s Trust and finally I have been able to do the full 24 hours with them. (I’ve always wanted to do this but every year after the first holiday one I’ve either been ill in pregnancy, pregnant or just about to have a baby)!
So here I am with them, watching them work hard with hair, selling raffle tickets, talking to people about us etc and it’s fabulous. They work so hard together and a lot of these girls have been here since the first one 6 years ago. 💕💕💕

You can still give us a call and pop in during the night for a quick appointment (no chemical treatments) or just pop in for some raffle tickets! (There are some amazing prizes).
What a fantastic feeling it is for us, that they keep coming back, they keep fundraising, they keep creating awareness for us and they keep choosing to support Millie’s Trust, that’s amazing.
The equivalent fundraiser by these lovely ladies last year raised enough money to train over 800 children – fantastic for them to see what we were using their fundraising to do.
