Many thanks to those who made charity suggestions here or on Ravelry! We did think of going with Water Aid - as Mary said it is very relevant to our work, we get through quite a bit of it!!
However we have decided to go with the Exeter Hospice for this year. Cancer affects many of us and I have lost several family members to the big C not to mention friends who have fought off various forms of cancer over recent years.
A very dear friend is currently being helped with paliative care by the hospice - so we feel it more appropriate for now. We hope you understand our choice! Any charges we have to make for bags, any loose change given in fact any "odds" will go into a collecting pot and the total given over at the end of the year!
thanking you in advance for your support!
