Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

Gorgeous on Wednesday... Saying thanks...

When a friend of ilovegorgeous... asked us to help them raise money for one of the best causes around we were pleased to be able to help out. And it wasn't just us, lots of great companies dug deep and donated vouchers, prizes and subscriptions for the Angels and Urchins 10th Anniversary raffle in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Angels and Urchins is the indispensable London parenting guide - all you need to know for parents and families in and around London. There's a magazine and a website to browse, with loads of great information, inspiration and practical advice.

Anyway, here's a letter they sent us which explains everything...

"I wanted officially to write and thank you for your incredibly generous donation in our raffle. 

The party held in Hyde Park was a tremendous success. We raised over £20,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital and 200 children of friends and family (and 120 mothers) had an unforgettable afternoon: water games, tug-of-war, Punch and Judy, Lucky Dip and the most sumptuous tea party. And the sun shone.

None of it could have been possible without the incredibly generous donations. £500 from Ilovegorgeous was definitely very high up on everyone's list of coveted prizes. We are hugely grateful as it generated so much interest. 

We would like to pass on the message of thanks we received from GOSH: 'We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended on the day and supported Great Ormond Street Children's Charity. The money raised will help to fund life-saving research and equipment and to redevelop the hospital, so we can help even more of our sickest children. Thank you.'

Have a great summer.

Best wishes

Annie and Emily, and all the angels  & urchins' team"
