Marisa and Molly have taken on the challenge to support our local hospice Dove House by trekking up a volcano in Iceland. Being the unfit coward that I am there is no possible way I would ever take on this sort of challenge on so full support for these brave girls who are prepared to do so. I am however more than happy to support them in their challenge. I will do this by donating 5% of all Facebook page sales from @Preloved from 04/05/2014 up to the value of £100 I will also at a later date find a piece of lovely furniture which I will up cycle and sell via a silent bid auction to help them raise the money needed. It is a brilliant thing they are doing and anything we can do to support them we will. So please check out their page and if you would like to help please do I am sure they will appreciate the support. I know I along with many others have relied on and received help and support from the Hospice. They only receive funding for 45 days per year it doesn’t take a mathematician to work out that leaves a massive shortfall every year for the Hospice to find. it is through fundraisers donations and the generous support of the community that they are able to do this. You never know when you may need their help God forbid but lets ensure if you ever do the funding is always there to offer each and every one of us the support we may need.
For more info or to donate to Marisa and Molly’s efforts please follow the following link and I will keep this page updated as to how we are doing at Preloved
Thanks Chris xx

For those that know me you will know a very important part of out family is out five year old Bijon cross Westie or Wichon as the Americans like to call them “Harry”.
Harry is the most wonderful michievous funny little being who brightens our life up no end. I was never an animal lover (nor disliker for that matter) but after incessant nattering from my children for over 30 years I thought I had got away with it, that was until my best friend Sherry and Paul decided to add one to their family !!! It appears pressure can come from all over but when the thumb screws are put on by your closest friend then you may as well surrender and that is exactly what I did. After seeing the little ball of fluff we know know as Alfie my heart totally melted when I met his brother Harry ( actually he didnt have a name at that point) and from that day nearly six years ago he has been one of my closest companions
The day we brought him home and sized him up !
This month sadly saw him suffer an injury to his left back leg and this has meant the most stressful of times for him and us,. Vet visits X rays and then this week a three day stay in the hospital and an operation….. so what has this meant for Preloved .It has meant a total standstill as I have worried and fretted but happily Harry is now home on complete bedrest for ten days while we nuture him through his recovery. Happily today he has been much brighter and is the perfect patient so it has given us a little time to list a few items that I have worked on over the last week So if any catches your eye please drop me a line and we will try to oblige ..in the meantime I will try to get the paint brushes back out again
Dont forget we accept Cash, VISA, PAYPAL and Bank transfer, and there is FREE local Hull delivery on all out items and couriers can be arranged for further afield (please email for quote)
