Dad's memory

By Nicola Whittle

I’m organising a coffee morning to make a difference.

Every minute, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a lung condition. Every pound I raise takes us closer to a world where everyone breathes clean air with healthy lungs.

Just £22 allows one of Asthma + Lung UK's nurses to answer a call on the Helpline, offering potentially lifesaving advice to someone in need.

Any donations you can give are hugely appreciated thank you for supporting me and everyone out there living with a lung condition.

Coffee morning tomorrow.

Friday 17th Nov
Well its the final day before my coffee morning, just had a count on the raffle prizes, over 60 donated. I've also been sorting both lucky dips and tombola. I am panicking slightly that itbwill be a flop but I know people loved dad so I know they will support it they can.
Will update tomorrow what I make. My goal is £500 fingers crossed 🤞 

Missing dad

Thursday 9th Nov
Well the coffee morning is next Saturday and I'm busy sorting raffle prizes, sweet tombola and everything else.
I have some amazing friends who have offered to help on the morning as well as wonderful people offering to help bake and help.
The grief of losing dad hurts like mad but the help and support from people who knew him makes me know how much he was loved and liked by everyone.
Dad I hope I do you proud with this coffee morning.
Forever in my heart always on my mind xxx

Coffee morning

Friday 3rd Nov
Well just over 2 weeks to.go for the coffee morning so I'm busy sorting through raffle prizes, sorting prices out and generally panicking but I have some amazing friends helping me with it and of course my amazing sister who is there for moral support.
Can't believe the generosity of people.
I just hope I make my goal.
Thank you everyone who has donated so far, be it raffle prizes or a donation in dad's memory, I can't tell you how much it means to me.

Well nearly 3 weeks until the coffee morning and people have been so generous with donating prizes for the raffle as well as offering to bake and help on the day.
The generous nature of everyone is unbelievable but it just goes to show how much dad was liked and repected. I miss him everyday as I know alot of people do.
I hope I do him proud.
Miss you dad.
