To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Centre for Clinical Haematology, leukaemia patient Jayne Bailey-Jones is using a very unique way of fundraising to help raise money for Cure Leukaemia co-founder Professor Charlie Craddock CBE, who has helped save her life.
Since being diagnosed with leukaemia in 2013, Jayne’s hobby of sewing has become more prominent in her life and she has found a way to support Cure Leukaemia as well as doing something she loves!
In August 2016, the Festival of Quilts returns to the NEC Birmingham and Jayne’s aim is to enter her very own patchwork quilt to signify the journey of leukaemia sufferers, just like herself.
But she needs your help...
The 48" x 48" quilt, is made up of more than 500 3" x 3" squares and it is these squared pieces of fabric that Jayne is asking you to donate, along with a £10 donation towards Cure Leukaemia.
To donate the fabric, please speak to Laura@cureleukaemia.co.uk and make your donation of £10 on Jayne’s JustGiving page HERE.
When sending your fabric square, please tell Laura what initials you would like to be embroidered on 'your' square - it can be the name of a loved one who didn't make it, or your own to celebrate your recovery.
All pieces of fabric will need to be in by April 1st so that Jayne can begin work on the patchwork quilt so please spread the word and help Jayne raise a phenomenal amount of money for Cure Leukaemia.
Following the Festival of Quilts, the quilt/wall hanging will be presented to Professor Charlie Craddock CBE, who has helped save her life, for displaying in the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the QE Hospital Birmingham.
Thank you for your support!
