There are only 24 hours left to bid on our final auction item, a one-of-a-kind bobble hat worn by Olly Murs himself and knitted for him by his Nanna:
A big THANK YOU to the Murs family for making our last item so special, to the ‘Ollyettes’ for spreading the word and supporting the auction since it began, to everyone who has bid so far and finally, to everyone who has taken part in the auction over the past year or visited this blog and read the story behind it.
We could not have done this without your help.
Today, is one year since our Dad headed for a better place, probably in search of a greater tasting cup of tea and a nibble on Heaven’s finest fudge.
To turn what may be a day of upsetting memories into something positive, we are opening the bids on one of our final auction pieces.
This item is Olly Murs’ hat, knitted by his Nan and kindly donated by Olly and his mum, Vickylynn.
