For the last week in November Ria Paine is going to spend the week dressed as Super Heroes. A different one for each day of the week, this means school run, work, shopping, whatever her daily routine she will be either Spider Man or Super Woman or whatever hero suits the day. This is to raise money for McMillan Nurses, please give generously and sponsor her. You can ring her on 07902625965 or go to the Floral Boutique and pledge your money. We never know when we may need McMillan and it is a valued service that we don’t want to lose.
