    Competition: Win a £50 Boden Voucher!



    I don’t usually do competitions, but this one’s for a very special reason…

    Regular readers will know that I am supporting a campaign to raise money to send a local Chester girl to the USA for cancer treatment (more on that here), and a huge thanks to those who donated after reading about it on here last time I mentioned it.  The update is that the  Anya Bentham Campaign now has just under 100 days to meet its target.

    I can’t run a raffle, but I spoke to the fantasmagorical people at BODEN and they agreed that it would be very marvelous indeed to run a free competition to highlight her cause, and sent through a whopping FIFTY POUNDS BODEN VOUCHER! (They sell ridiculously cute clothes for kids and stylish ones for adults – big wet smoochy thanks to them for the help).

    We all like something for nothing, so all I can do is politely ask that if you would like to please please do text a quick little donation to Anya’s campaign while entering the competition (text Anya99 and your amount £1-10 to 70070 or visit https://www.justgiving.com/appeal4anya/). It’s not a raffle, it’s more of an honesty pot. You don’t have to give if you don’t want to, I’m not tracking who does or doesn’t, but if everyone who entered this gave just a little bit, or even a lot, wouldn’t that be awesome?

    So here it is. There’s no tricky question, please just tell me how you’ve shared the competition and good luck!

    a Rafflecopter giveaway

    Hi Jane,
    I receive your blog post by subscription. I want to let you know you are doing such an awesome job of raising money for Anya. Keep up the great work ! I live in the US and I do hope Anya gets to travel here for her treatment.

      Thanks Priyanka! I’m not on the fundraising team (sadly not enough hours) but those that are have been working tremendously hard and doing a great job. This is literally nothing in comparison to their efforts, but hoping every little helps as it spurred a few donations last time! x

    That is so kind of Boden & yourself for running this giveaway. I so love Boden & now I have a God-Daughter I’d love to spoil her with clothes from there so this is my chance. I have shared on twitter as @jessups I am going to text to give a small donation I wish I could give more but unfortunately I’m ill myself & can not work but I am going to inform my friends about this cause & bookmark these details to pass on. Well done on all the great work so far xxx

      Just wanted to ask if you could pass on my best wishes to Anya or her family if possible. I too went to America for some health treatment & the medical team I dealt with were amazing. Good Luck to her x
