As many of you will know, last weekend Grayson’s Great Fun Day finally took place, it was a HUGE success and did better than I could have hoped. I shall be posting about it shortly.
I managed to get the local paper to agree to come and do what I thought would be a small article inside, mainly about my head shave. We had a call on the Monday asking if a Photographer could come and take a couple of pic’s for the paper to come out Thursday, the young reporter sounded excited but I still didn’t take much notice.
So before I went to work on Thursday Ash quickly popped out to pick up the paper so we could all see together, Ash went to the Sainsbury’s Local but arrived at 5 minutes to 7am so had to wait for them to open, he said as he was daydreaming he turned to look in the window to be met by a row of this….
Yep My Amazing Little Boy made the Front Page, we couldn’t believe it, what amazing coverage.
This is why we hosted the funday and I shaved my head to raise awareness for SWAN Children, what more could I ask for than a Front Page Article, oh yeah a Full Page Article inside too, along with one in 3 other towns papers, plus online coverage.
Yes they got a few things wrong, but what article doesn’t ?
I actually raised the money for 2 disabled children’s Charities, my hair went to children’s Cancer Charities.
I am so proud to be walking in Petrol Stations, Corner Shops and Supermarkets to see my Little Grayson staring back at me, I hope we just make one more person aware, then I have done my job.
If you can’t read the article in the picture, then head here for online version.
