Gill’s story

One of our amazing supporters, Gill, has done some fantastic fundraising for us over the years.

Gill cares for her mum who lives with dementia and was the winner of our Kindness in Action award at our 2017 Making Space Awards, along with her mother Dorothy. "It’s been quite a journey for me with mum, which is why I love attending the peace of mind cafes that Making Space run in Bury. They have helped both myself and mum immensely!"

Gill Fundraising Pegs

Gill started off making small magnetic pegs to sell in her community to help raise funds for us. She now runs a monthly market and has raised over £1,100!

I shall continue to support Making Space as long possible though mum’s dementia is progressing and so my free time to make things is limited. I hope by sharing this I can help to inspire others to do the same.
