Earlier this month, we decided that we wanted to try and do something to help the sufferers of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.
To help push for donations, we put up a short break at one of the cottages into a prize draw, with the only entry requirement being a donation of any size to this cause.
After setting out a target of £1,500 and reaching this in just 5 days, we were able to raise a grand total of £1,815.34 – 21% more than our intended target!
Chosen at random, Sherri Hunter was the selected donor who has been chosen to win a short at one of our cottages.
A big thank you to everyone who donated and congratulations to Shelly!

Hurricane Matthew has been a devastating storm causing significant damage and loss of life in Haiti, where heavy rain and winds of up to 145mph (230kmh) have been lashing the south-west of the country. You can read the appeal on redcross.org.uk
Seeing all of this devastation has compelled us at The Grove Cottages to try and do something to help.
I will be donating a short break at one of our cottages into a prize draw, and all you have to do is make a donation via this Just Giving page
— it doesn’t matter how big or small!
The winner will be picked at random on Thursday 27th October and invited to stay at Snow, Rose, Bakery, Farm, Dons or Orchard Cottage* for a 3 night weekend or a 4 night midweek break between Friday 28th October and February 8th 2017
Anyone who donates to the Red Cross appeal via my Just Giving page will be entered into the draw. The winner will be selected at random from those who donated and announced on our blog, Facebook and Instagram.
Good luck and thank you for doing your part to help the sufferers of this tragic event.
