Well yesterday was a very surreal day .. first up was our first ever coffee and cake meet up Chilli Cake Kitchen & Bar.. it was a great success and enjoyed by all the Mams.
Then it was Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation Golden Giveaway awards. I knew very little about the charity before today but it is clear they do amazing things for our area and community.
The room was full of amazing , lovely people doing wonderful things for our community. It was just brilliant to hear about all these caring people putting in so much effort to help others.
To be awarded the £5000 with 3 times more votes than anyone else was astonishing. We had assumed the lovely ladies we met from Neoangels would be awarded the 1st prize. To be told we’d won was unbelievable, we were speechless, though I managed to garble out a totally unrehearsed speech.
Thank you to each and every one of you who voted , shared and encouraged others to vote too. We could not have done this without your support.
Thank you to our fabulous volunteers ,
