M.A.D

I craft while living with Anxiety, Hyperthyroidism, Arthritis, Burning Mouth Syndrome and the side effects of chemotherapy ????I fundraise for my charity M.A.D (make and donate). Check it out on fb. I started in 2012 with a cheque for £200 and it took off from there. As a survivor I wanted to give back to the hospital cancer unit and ward. I fundraise for the patients to try and make life a bit more bearable. Raised £33,000 to date. Donate things that nhs can't/won't buy...12 fridges for ward...chairs for relatives to stay over with family...drug stands and trollies. Syringe drivers...care packages for ward..sofas for relatives room. And anything else that is needed. Make up chemo care bags for first timers...I remember my first day and put all the bits and bobs in that I wish I had...and other stuff!! I make and create to keep me less anxious and love the warm and fuzzy feeling giving back. Thank you for looking Lesley ❣

I ordered a wonderful poncho from M.A.D. Its not my first purchase, nor will it be my last from this lovely lady. Her items are beautifully made and great value for money. Not only can I highly recommend this seller but feel I need to state that all her profits go direct to a local cancer hospital for patients receiving treatment. Perfect reason to purchase from M. A. D.

Beautiful Shawl ::

4th April 2019 Jayne Bryant

I purchased a shawl from the wonderful Lesley. The shawl is made to perfection. The colour and size of it is great, plenty of room for comfort. The pattern is lovely, very pretty but with lots of durability too. It will certainly be well used. I love the fact that all proceeds from these sales go to charity. Wonderful sentiment. I would recommend Lesley's products without a doubt. Thank you.
