A Gift from Thorntons

Thornton's Christmas Hero Competition
A few weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely folk at Thorntons to see if I would like to play a bit of chocolate secret Santa. They asked if I knew of a special someone who might deserve a box of treats...
Only one lady came to mind - my pal Gemma. Last Sunday she faced her fear and chucked herself off a 160ft crane over the freezing Salford Docks to raise money for Bolton Hospital's Women's Health Unit. She was utterly terrified, dangling in a cage before leaping off in front of a crowd of her friends and family. 

This was all in aid of our Charlie's Angels fundraiser. Earlier this year a dear friend of ours tragically lost her baby boy Charlie, and almost lost her own life too. The Royal Bolton Hospital's Women's Health Unit not only saved Debbie's life, but supported her family through the most difficult time they could ever imagine. 

As soon as Gemma heard we were running a fundraiser for the hospital, she offered her services without hesitation. Through Gemma's jump, an amazing bake sale and star studded raffle, we have raised over £2500 for the unit. Debbie's brother and sisters raised an additional £1000 by completing the three peaks challenge. 

I could not think of a person more deserving than Gemma. Enjoy!
