EIGHTEEN #AdventForLeo #AdventToRemember
Today we went to @thevyne_nt where weâve been many times before. This time we went specifically for their Tag a Tile event where they are refurbishing the roof of the Tudor house after it was damaged in a storm on Christmas Eve in 2013. As part of the extensive project, theyâve opened a rooftop walkway so you can see the works as well as a chance to decorate the back of a tile for the new roof! So obviously we did one for both Leo and Eli, safe in the knowledge that for years to come, there little lives will have a small part of a place we love to visit! We obviously also did the childrenâs trail which was rather festive!
BUT, whilst we were there we received some exciting news. Last year we received a Â£5,000 donation from a Trust Fund courtesy of a close family friend. That donation we split four ways across the charities that we support and were so overwhelmed. However, we were even more overwhelmed to discover weâve received the saw Â£5,000 donation again this year! We have chosen to split this evenly between Oxfordshire @sandscharity, @tommys_thebabycharity, @achingarmsuk, @mamaacademy and as an addition this year, Reading Lifeline who supported us through their counselling and antenatal support groups this year. We couldnât be happier to be able to support each of these fantastic charities... and even happier that it brings us to... Â£22,944!!! Touching distance to Â£23,000! What an amazing Christmas pressie to Leo ðð¼ðð¼
