This could be another ‘Bah Humbug’ moment. Like Christmas, Mothers’ Day is a tough one without Henry but I seem to be gathering a series of surrogate sons, which helps (I’m also lucky in having Sarah, my lovely step-daughter in my life.)
There are some words you never want to hear. Hearing them is the worst thing in the world but when they apply to your only child it is so much worse – your whole world is turned upside down and torn apart in the blink of an eye.
Here are just some of the things I heard in the space of 348 days and the emotions I felt when I heard them…
April 23rd, 2016 sees our 5th Annual Ball at Beamish Hall Hotel Winter Gardens. The ball is a lovely opportunity to dress up and have some fun, wearing Posh frocks and DJs (or lounge suits for those who prefer to look less like penguins!).
Do you run a small business, or have a friend who does?
We can help them meet their Corporate Social Responsibility aspirations with our new Corporate Partnership project. Businesses will have use of Henry Dancer Days’ unique Corporate logo as well as other PR benefits (and certain other options which can include Ball Tickets to our Annual extravaganza at Beamish Hall in April)
You know that feeling when you’re just dozing off? You’re snug and warm and can finally relax?
Imagine then that there’s a machine, 3 feet from your face, beeping the same aggravating high pitched 3 notes over and over and over. A curtain swishes open and a torchlight illuminates the machine (an IV Drip) as someone turns the beeping off…
Henry Dancer Days has had a tip off which enables early entry before the Great North Run general ballot is opened on Saturday!!
Christmas Day has been and gone and I had a ball in the Great North Children’s Hospital playing Mrs Claus.
So here we are on Boxing Day – many of us will start to feel stir crazy in the house and have had the traditional family argument over the Monopoly/Scrabble board or gaming session. Time, then to start looking at further shopping opportunities in the Boxing Day and January sales. If you’re planning an online splurge, please remember that when you use easyfundraising.org.uk you can raise donations for Henry Dancer Days without any extra cost or effort.
