With enormous thanks to all our contributors, here are some of the promises so far:

  1. With spectacular views, a week at Minack House, overlooking the Minack Theatre, the coast and the sea. A stay in this property is a once in a lifetime experience as it is not normally available to rent
  2. A signed photograph from the Magnum photographer Martin Parr
  3. Something knitted by Cllr Sandra Brown – whatever you would like…
  4. A delicious three course dinner for two with wine at the award-winning restaurant, The Ollerod, Beaminster
  5. A guided tour around the House of Lords and tea with Tony Hall, Life Peer and Director-General of the BBC
  6. 1-2-1 sewing lesson for up to 8 hours. This could be focused on making from a pattern, making something decorative (like bunting) or just basic sewing skills to create something fantastic
  7. A day trip for four on the Oxford Canal in a fabulous 47 foot traditional canal boat, plus a buffet lunch with a view
  8. A week’s stay in Sturthill Stable, a beautiful three bedroom barn conversion for six people, deep in the Dorset countryside
