We need your support!

My son and his friends have passed an audition to host a show on Brayford Radio! This online station is not only for students in Lincoln, but 16-25 year-olds around the UK and perhaps even around the world.
Their first show starts tonight (Friday) at 6-7pm GMT and they would love  as many people as possible to support them in their new venture!
Here is the link to the online site:
http://brayfordradio.org.uk
Once there click on the "Listen Live" button which will take you to a box saying:"This link needs to be opened with an application" select "ok"button. Hopefully you will then be able to hear the station, please note this may take a few seconds to work!
Thank you for your support and look out for some more crafting projects here soon!

A HUGE SPORT RELIEF THANK YOU!!!!!










Sophie and I would just like to thank everyone that generously donated to Sophie's Sport Relief Mile! With the money she raised for the school Treadmillathon Sophie raised a total of £75! As we thought Sophie was able to start and finish the walk under her own steam but the rest was done in the wheelchair! She is very proud of her Medal that she got for taking part and is still wearing it now!
Here are a few photo's of the event!
