On 23rd September we held a fundraising event in memory of my son, Mark Hudson.
I belong to a sewing group based in Loughborough. The owner of the shop, Sue Copeman, came up with the brilliant idea of inviting Heather Jacks, the winner of the Great British Sewing Bee series, to come and give us a talk at the local village hall. Heather gave a very amusing insight into her trials and tribulations throughout the filming and of becoming the eventual and well deserved winner.
Many people donated tombola prizes and Pfaff donated a fabulous sewing machine for the raffle. We all had a great evening fuelled by nibbles and wine and raised the staggering amount of £1035!!
Marks aunt also gave a moving speech reminding us of the reason we were all there.
We will never get over losing Mark nearly two years ago now but united as family and friends, we are determined to help raise the profile of CRY.
