100 days of happiness… Day 8: Lovely friends who did a lovely collection
My lovely friend Sarah, and the good folk at 23 Seats (see their Facebook page here, and give them a like: 23 Seats, and also give Sarah's art page a likey too: Studio Crow Street) organised a money collection for myself and Simon recently. Originally to help with travel to radiotherapy, although we then received a taxi service (from the lovely Carrickmacross Cancer Society). The money however has really helped towards general bills -which have unfortunately been on the back burner the last while (with issues in not receiving the medical card yet, etc.).
Just over €145 really is alot to us, and me and Simon really are so touched -I honestly had NO idea that this had been organised, and I feel so unworthy (although I was immediately warned by Sarah that I wasn't allowed to give the money to a charity... which I very nearly did, haha). Again, thank you all to everyone who contributed, yous are all absolute sweethearts!
