Hello there and welcome back to part 2 of #lilyswish as you are all aware myself and the rest of our May 2011 mummies have joined forces to get together a hamper of treats for our lovely friend Liz and her children Lily,Chloe and Blake. We have been tweeting,emailing and facebooking like mad and we have had some truly outstanding donations flooding in as well as messages of support and shares of our posts. Yesterday Leanne,Stacie and Angela all friends from our May 2011 group went to visit and surprise Lily and her family with all the wonderful treats you have helped donate to our very worthy cause which quite simply was to bring smiles and help create some fun and long lasting family memories that can always be treasured and lets not forget to show how much we love them and are with them every step of the way.
