As some of will know i have a Granddaughter Millie (4) who has and still is treated for a heart issue at the Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton. The childrens unit at the hospital do a brilliant job and the nurses there show a level of dedication and care that you rarely see.
Over the last year my Grandson Ben (7) began to have some health issues, he fainted a couple of times and experienced some dizzy spells at school and at home. Tests were carried out over a period of time then two weeks ago we found out that he has to go into hospital to have a kind of defibrillator fitted into his chest. Earlier this week we found out that this will take place on the 23rd January. So now we have two Grandchildren, brother and sister with heart issues. Millie has never known any different with hers as it was discovered when she was about six months old, Ben on the other hand finds it hard to understand why he has his problem but we tell him he has to be brave and it will all be ok in the end. What else can you say?
Anyway, a great friend of mine, Harry has always followed Millie`s progress and when he learned of Ben`s illness came up with this drawing of two rutting stags and gave it to me and said to auction it for the childrens unit at the hospital in Taunton.
It is A3 (420mm x 297mm) in size and is on white paper though my photo doesn`t look like it!
Now to the auction..
It will run until 9pm on Saturday 25/1/2014. The drawing will be framed before being sent to the winning bidder. Payment is preferably by cheque made out to Paediatric Donated Funds. (A cheque means everything is open and transparent) All proceeds that the Childrens Unit receives goes towards updating equipment, toys, furniture, bedding and anything else that is needed. The unit also caters for parents to stay over with their children where the need arises.
Any questions .. please shout.
Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
