Emma bridgewater charity mug



Yesterday when i was writing a bucket list for myself i stumbled upon the blog of Alice Pyne.
Please go and visit Alice Courageous blog and buy this gorgeous mug:








Words from Emma Bridgewater site:


Last year we were really pleased to work with 15 year old Alice Pyne, who contacted us about designing a mug as part of the “bucket list” of wishes she’d drawn up following her diagnosis of terminal cancer. The lovely mug she created featured a beach hut in Torquay where Alice had spent some happy holidays thanks to the help of the charity Torbay Holiday Helpers Network (THHN), along with her Labrador Mabel. £10 from the price of each mug was donated to this charity, and Alice has now set up a charity of her own, Alice’s Escapes, which will do work similar to THHN, providing free, relaxing holidays for seriously ill children. To celebrate this new charity, Alice has designed a sweet new mug, which has the same summery theme to her last mug, and features lots of sunshine and a sailing boat in the Cumbrian Lakes and the mountains. We will continue to donate £10 from the sale of each mug to Alice’s Escapes.

Buy yours here

Alice is ace. she mentioned something on her blog a while ago about other children who are poorly, who you can send little note and gifts to. It is anonymous and I think the idea is that you send something that brightens their day. It is a good idea.
Ta for my blog award lovely. It is nice to be appreciated. xxx
