Wondering where Fabella trotted off to, she's gone to @AASaltLtd raising £5500 for @StRichardsHosp . I did a watercolour of her as a commission the lovely @_helenmole & donated 3 prints to the hospice. Would you like your own Fabella print. Only 25 exist . DM me x

Worcestershire businessman Dave Graesser, generously added to the money raised by kind supporters in our Save our Snowdrop appeal with a winning auction bid of £8,000.
Mr Graesser, whose wife, Sue, is being cared for in the hospice In-patient Unit, said the couple wanted to support St Richard’s as a way of thanking them for all they have done.
Snowdrop will be joined by Touch the Wishing Star, designed by Toyah Willcox, which was donated to the hospice by its winning bidder John Sheen.
Mr Sheen bought the sculpture in memory of his daughter Sarah Trueman, nee Sheen, who was cared for by St Richard’s before she died in August, aged 31. Read more bit.ly/2C8I4hv
