So, massive congratulations to everyone who worked on this quilt, or indeed offered encouragement, inspiration or practical help.
Last night the Trudy Crowley Foundation was launched at a Twilight Dinner at the Mackay Marina, and I’m delighted and thrilled to let you know that the quilt raised $1,050 at the live auction. There was a professional photographer there and a cameraman from the local TV station, so there may be better publicity in the next few days than my phone camera shots… Also present were the deputy mayor and a couple of the local MPs, so the PR team had done their work.
As suspected, the quilt went to Trudy’s great friend and Director of the Foundation, who’d already told me she was prepared to outbid everyone else to secure it. She was as good as her word.
The Foundation has already secured the services of a warm, passionate and dedicated Ovarian Cancer and palliative care nurse, the lovely Rosie, who was at the dinner and has expressed interest in a pair of teal wings to wear at work 🙂
I’ll be having a meeting soon with the organisers to discuss the next quilt, which will be auctioned at the Nude Lunch event. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get it done for this year’s, which is in September, but definitely for the next one.
But maybe not till after I’ve moved house….
