we're doing the Summer Draw on the 28th of August with Tavish Scott in his office and will be filming the draw for legitimacy ... I'm hoping to Facebook live it, though, I've never done one, so I'm toying with just a video upload to make sure it works lol... the prizes are;

2 return flights with Loganair from Shetland to Aberdeen; a cabin car and 2 passinger return journey to Aberdeen or Kirkwall with the Northlink Ferry Terminal; a peerie Trow from Trowie Knowe Crafts ; an amazing print from Susan Pearson Art and Illustration; a voucher for one of Katja's Cakesamazing cakes; a voucher for Tasty Hong Kong Takeaway; and loads more!

There's still time to enter should you feel lucky! (via the facebook link or private mail me here)

Thank you all who have entered so far, we're inching closer, by the day, towards getting Joseph his new arm

Hi 😊

Sorry for the lack of updates but we've been busy 😄

Joseph has grown his hair a bit ... and has also had a new quote for the be-bionic hand plus components nearer to home (Glasgow), so I thought I'd better get my finger out and edit the page to reflect the changes in circumstances.

As always you'll find us bag packing away in the lerwick co-op, randomly, I must admit, and we have a raffle on the go also, with some great prizes from loganair and northlink not to mention some amazing local culinary delights and artwork.. plus a trow! Alongside a bundle of your usual sorts of raffle prizes 😊 wish I could enter lol

I'll try to keep this page a little more manned.

As always, thank you. We're inching towards our goal and it wouldn't be possible without your kindness.

Gillian xx

Another awesome night in Da Kiln Bar! The money donated (£118) along with the money thats come in for Josie's dad Gibbie's great swim, that he did in the summer, (£610) and a hugly generous Christmas donation from Josie's granny and grandad, Ruby and Gibbie (£2000) the half way mark's been blown totally out the water and we're now at £23,450! In just over a year!

When i started up all this last October, i didn't really have a plan, i set up the fundraising page on a whim and wasn't really sure if we'd raise anything at all. I have to say im totally overwhelmed by the support we've had, and even though its been said a million times before, shetland people, you are amoung the kindest in the world. And of course, thank you too all who have got us this far, your hearts are golden.


lets hope im thanking everyone this time next year for helping us reaching the total 😉😊😙

Just an update on the page, there was a little bit of a glitch in the matrix and paypal was taken away as a donation option, but its been fixed again now, and you'll see the option once you put in an amount and click next :)
