Earlier this year, I shared details of the Flying the Flag campaign - a special Eurovision themed flag.
Following my diagnosis with leukaemia, I set out to raise funds for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, and being a Eurovision fan, I was really keen to include this as part of my fundraising. Ben Morris kindly designed a unique flag, which in turn was signed by all previous UK winners of Eurovision, along with Sir Terry Wogan and Graham Norton.
The Flag was raffled, and a fantastic £1,143.88 was raised on the Flying the Flag JustGiving page! Many thanks to everyone who entered the raffle and who donated towards the project. Last week the completed flag was presented to the winner by former Eurovision winners Brotherhood of Man at an event in Bournemouth, and I'm delighted to share the photo from the Flag presentation with you below:
Following the success of this campaign, we are currently planning the project ABBA The Flag. Stay tuned for further updates, and you can find out more on the project's Facebook page.
