Diana Award

Wednesday, 06 July 2011.

On Monday 16th May 2011 we were invited to an exciting national award ceremony in London to receive our Diana Awards. Mrs Smith kindly nominated us because we raised £628 for Breast Cancer and Motor Neurone Disease charities and we continue to raise money. These are charities that are close to our hearts and have affected our families in some way, as well as many families around the world. We wanted to raise awareness of these charities and help to raise money for research into these illnesses.
