We wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all of you who are taking part in our knit challenge, we have had a great response and I believe your kind donations are still being made! We are so thankful to each and everyone of you who have taken the time out of your busy lives to provide such phenomenal support for Melanoma UK.
We have had over 100 PICC Line covers sent in to us so far and we know we have more to come, all ready to be collected by patients at the show. Melanoma UK is Second Skin Events Ltd chosen charity of the year, the mission is to raise as much funds and awareness as possible. Whilst on our mission to spread the word about Melanoma we heard about the PICC Lines and how these are used to administer chemo, we wanted to make live a little brighter for the patients and allow them to wear short sleeves with confidence in all this lovely weather we are having this year and so the challenge #PickaPICC was born.
Each of the covers we have had in are unique in design and look simply fabulous, we have no doubt that they will be loved dearly by each of the new owners that collects them.
If you wish to collect a cover on Saturday 16th August at the Popup Wool Show, please contact us to let us know you are coming so we can pop your name down at the collection point. You can collect on behalf of someone for a gift. Please can we ask those of you not fitted with the PICC Line to make a small donation to the cause.
At the show you will meet the very lovely Diane Cannon who will be at the Melanoma UK Stand ready to greet you. She is simply fabulous and will look after all of your needs and be able to tell you more about the charity. Melanoma UK provide such a fantastic service to those who need it so please don’t be shy to talk to her if you think you could do with some support, or if you need more information about Melanoma.
(Those of you who are un aware of the challenge, please follow this link for an overview – #PickaPICC Challenge )
Second Skin Events and Popup Wool Show have had so many heartfelt messages from people from all over the UK about the PICC line covers who will not be able to attend the show. For those of you in the same boat, please dont worry you can still arrange to send you a PICC Line cover.
Please send us your name and address and make a donation to our JUST GIVING page and we will post one out to you.
Thank you once again from us all at Second Skin Events, Popup Wool Show and Melanoma UK!
