Go fund a worthy cause

Tim Pollard, former member of GW's Design Studio, currently Nottingham's official Robin Hood, and all-round smashing person, is getting married. Tim is marrying Dr. Sally Chappell, Lecturer in Human Molecular Genetics at the University of Nottingham, and - appropriately - Nottingham's official Maid Marian.

Sally has incurable breast cancer. Despite this, Sally continues her work at Nottingham and raises both funds and awareness of breast cancer issues, in the midst of having to face the grueling challenges of chemotherapy.

Tim's daughter Candy has started a gofundme campaign to raise donations towards converting a garage into a usable sewing/play room for Sally and her 2 and half year old daughter (Candy's sister), Scarlett.

The target is £5000, and the campaign is already halfway to being achieved. Tim and Sally have contributed so much to their community, and deserve something in return. If you can donate something - no matter what the amount - then I know they would be eternally grateful.

The link for donations is https://www.gofundme.com/salandscarlett

Go fund them!
