    This year at Lincoln we'll be having a charity raffle. We normally donate to national charities but I thought we'd be selfish this years and choose a smaller charity close to our hearts. So 100% of the raffle ticket sales with go toward research for Myasthenia Gravis*, some of you may know that our daughter Katie suffers with this, as yet, incurable disease.

    We'll be doing our best to get some great prizes for the raffle, and if you have anything that you'd like to offer as a prize that would be great. The raffle will be drawn on Sunday after the bacon roll breakfast. http://www.myaware.org/

    Myasthenia gravis (my-us-THEE-nee-uh GRAVis) is characterised by weakness and rapid fatigue of any of the muscles under your voluntary control. This is caused by a breakdown in the normal communication between nerves and muscles.
    There is no cure for myasthenia gravis, but treatment can help relieve signs and symptoms, such as weakness of arm or leg muscles, double vision, drooping eyelids, and difficulties with speech, chewing, swallowing and breathing.
    Though Myasthenia Gravis can affect people of any age, it's more common in women younger than 40 and in men older than 60.

    Could you start a "just giving" page for anyone who just wants to contribute?

    You could raffle a subscription deal for minimum £5 donations or anybody could just chip in anyway

    Just had a message from @FJmike donating a prize to this raffle.

    I would like to offer a Standard Valet( value £55.00) from www.motorhomevalet.co.uk. This would not include mileage and could be upgraded with additional cost being paid by winner. So that the prize can be used at the winners convenience can you say to be used within twelve months.

    What a great prize. Thanks Mike, really appreciate it. (y)

    Jim.

    I have a Brand New unused rucksack (photo attached) worth about £30 retail which you can use for the raffle if want. We are staying in the general section but hope to join you as much as possible. Will drop it over on Thursday.
