    Congratulations to the winners, I will be in touch

    I know that for all of you it is far more about supporting the worthy causes than winning prizes so many, many thanks for the support.

    To recap the winners:

    111. Suds - Smiths Everest
    93. Browners - Seiko SKX009
    262. Wimm - CWC G10

    A lot of fun always. Laura is turning into quite the fundraiser, with a little help from her Dad.

    Well that was exciting! Congratulations to the winners and to Matthew and family for a successful campaign. It's nothing less than heartwarming to see an online community rally in such a sincerely supportive manner. Onward and upward... (which includes me peeking at the Smiths site every other hour).

    Agree wholeheartedly, I shall treasure your investment Alec. Honestly, I never win raffles - second time in my long living memory, patience is clearly key.

    Well done to all for raising some much needed cash to help beat this awful disease, I bury yet another family member who died from cancer next Friday so know first hand the pain it can cause.
    But on a lighter note itís great that Laura is doing doing well and thank you to Mathew for organising.

    What a pleasant surprise to log on to tonight, what a fantastic gesture Matthew and great to know itís for such a good cause. Thank you to Laura for pulling my number from the pot and it will be my first ever Seiko so looking forward to putting it on my wrist, Iíll post some pictures when I do
    Great effort from the forum too, this place really does have a certain Ďfeel goodí factor about it when it comes to charity fundraising and long may it last.

    Just realised - Laura has made me a watch collector!
    I only really started about 6 months ago and this acquisition puts my collection in Double figures.

    Thank you Mr C! Smith's Everest arrived today, extremely well packaged. I am surprised at how much this watch exudes quality - now I understand why Eddie's watches are so well regarded by forum members. Although photos don't do this watch justice (I'm loving it in the flesh) I'll try to post some pics tomorrow. Once again thanks to all involved 🤗😘😘😘

    Glad you are enjoying your prize. Mine arrived yesterday similarly well packed. Lovely little watch in great condition (except or the scratch I've already put on it).

    Fantastic Total

    It is always lovely to hear about the watches arriving at their new homes, thanks!

    The icing on the cake is that there have been a couple of donations after the event, bringing the total to an absolutely magnificent £1,500. That's three times my initial target and really is a huge boost to Nicola's Fund.

    We've just had an e-mail from JustGiving advising that this fundraiser was one of their most successful in February, in the top 3%.
    Thanks everybody!
