7 weeks into lockdown because of the Coronavirus outbreak and I have just launched a HUGE giveaway for Key Workers in Kent!!!
A number of weeks ago, I was really struggling with the fact I had the self isolate myself and my family due to my youngest daughter being vulnerable after suffering with her breathing many times. In April 2019, she was put into a coma at the Evelina Children’s Hospital in London because of this. This has meant that during lockdown me and my 3 children couldn’t leave the house AT ALL, except for our daily exercise.
This was hard for me, as I had to rely on my friends and family bringing me essentials, and I was unable to help anybody. I have always been an independent woman, I work hard to provide for my family and I am in the process of buying us a house – which I never thought would ever be possible. So to go from that to someone with no income what-so-ever, in just a matter of weeks, and having people bring me milk and bread, it was just horrible.
I have friends and clients that are keyworkers, and seeing what they go through on a day to day basis just got to me. It made me feel guilty for the days I found difficult and spent crying – I have just been asked to stay home, why is that upsetting me when these amazing people are risking their lives to keep us safe and healthy???
I wanted to give back somehow!
As I work in the wedding industry as a bridal hairstylist, I had the idea of offering free wedding hair for someone planning their wedding….. but this didn’t seem enough at all!
I contacted a few wedding suppliers in Kent that I have personally used or worked with to see if they would help me come up with an ENTIRE WEDDING to give away… I was blown away by the response and their sheer generosity.
We now have 27 incredible suppliers, and a whopping 30k wedding to giveaway.
None of the suppliers will earn a single penny, which makes it even more astonishing as at this current time, we are all on very little, or no income at all, and our businesses hanging are in the balance.
The lucky couple will get married at the Bromley Court Hotel, which is a stunning venue with beautiful grounds. They will enjoy a beautifully decorated ceremony conducted by our own celebrant.
In the lead up to the wedding, the couple will get to design…. YES DESIGN their own wedding bands, and be kitted out in beautiful, custom made outfits.
In the evening they will enjoy a band, DJ and even a magician to entertain their guests…… absolutely everything has been covered, and it will be the wedding of dreams!
Id quite like to win myself! actually! (haha)
