Marie Curie Cancer Care, Please donate

paisley-abbey-logos

I am currently helping organise an online auction in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
This appeal is on behalf of a friend of the Paisley website.

I am trying to raise as much as I can for this very worthwhile charity, following their help with an immediate family member in her final stages of life.
I obtained permission from Marie Curie to do the fund raising, and received both a written letter & email letter of authorisation. I have approached various “Celebs” via Twitter, asking if they would be willing to donate something to be auctioned.

Angela says, I have received quite a number of replies with promises of help, so far I have managed to secure 10 signed books, music goodies, a signed limited edition print from an artist, & a one off piece of handmade costume jewellery, along with other bit and pieces being sent to me, (such as signed pics etc) A friend of mine has helped out by enlisting the help of 2 other very well known “Celebs” and I have secured items from them. And may also have secured the rugby ball from the forthcoming Scotland v England 6 nations game.
The online auction is planned for the end of March, once I have gathered everything up to auction, as I want to do one big auction.

I am looking for items that the public might not ordinarily be able to obtain, and as a huge Robbie Williams fan have recently purchased a limited edition of a Robbie Williams Commemorative 2010 Brit award plaque that is limited to 250 copies, which I plan to auction in aid of Marie Curie in my auction.
Any help would be very gratefully received.

If you can help please email Angela Heaney angiebabes999@sky.com

If you cant donate something yourself then please pass this on to someone that can help…
Remember all proceeds will go to a very worthwhile charity, The Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.

KDS Road Safety “STOP THE DEATHS ON UK ROADS”

paisley-abbey-logos

3,172 people were killed on the UK’s roads each year. That means that every day, nine police officers have to visit nine families and break the news that a loved one has suffered a sudden, violent death.  A further 28,673 people are seriously injured in road crashes. That’s more than 70 people every day suffering injuries which include brain damage, paralysis, loss of limbs, severe burning or facial disfigurement – injuries that can change lives forever.

KDS are dedicated to reducing these figures.

KDS recently won a Fleet Safety Forum award for excellence for its outstanding commitment to road safety. By re-branding its vehicles it aims to keep road safety at the forefront of the minds of employees and other road users.

Our aim,  is to initiate a sea change in attitudes towards road safety and proposing proactive ways of reducing the unacceptable record of death and injury on UK roads.

We will be using this petition to raise this issue with the British and Scottish Parliaments.
