Who donated money on the back of the wedding dress thread for the children we're hosting this summer (well, now...) from Belarus.

The original thread has vanished and I don't have a copy so can't add anything on there, but please know that I, the families and the children are eternally grateful for the kindness and generosity shown to us in what are very difficult times for many.

Im more than happy to post pictures etc on our days out, and we had a lovely day on Sunday at the BBQ at my house, when the lovely Woolly Hugs folk came too.

Anyway, I just wanted you to know how grateful we are.

ilove X

I just want to say (having loved every minute of the wedding dress thread!) that I think you are a wonderful person ilove.

What a lovely update ilove. I'm pleased to hear that the children enjoyed their stay and you were able to create wonderful memories for them. X

I sadly couldn't afford to donate (and I know that isn't why you mentioned them) but I hope you have a wonderful summer, you truly deserve it.

The children are here until August 20th - they are lovely, need feeding up and to get some colour in their cheeks though.

Can anyone link the wedding dress thread? I don't remember it.

Sounds like you are doing wonderful work, ilove, and I hope the children have a lovely summer.

The OP of the thread has had it deleted..

I follow Woolly Hugs on FB and the pictures of the youngsters going past on there are heartwarming.

So much love to you all from this wee part of Yorkshire smile

ilove Tue 26-Jul-16 09:57:10

Aww Thankyou. They are lovely children - I'm worried about a couple of them but am hoping they perk up soon, if not I have a GP on hand who will check them over.

Has the wedding been yet?

Libitina Tue 26-Jul-16 11:05:42

Can someone just give a quick rundown on what this about please? I didn't see the original thread.

Wedding dress was being altered & dressmaker buggered it up. With literally days to go ilove stepped in. The bride travelled to meet ilove, the dress was altered, the bride looked amazing & ilove reminded us all there are some genuinely amazing people in the world.

Ilove it might be worth asking MNHQ if they would let you have a transcript of that thread.

I think deleted threads still exist somewhere, I remember a thread in Chat that disappeared because the 90 days had elapsed, and the OP had it reinstated somewhere permanent.

SillyMoomin Tue 26-Jul-16 11:25:07

well done Ilove, so pleased the children are having a good time. You were a star on that thread

Hope the original op is doing well too

Why on earth did the OP have the wedding dress thread deleted?

GaryGilmoresEyes Tue 26-Jul-16 11:25:36

As a lurker on the dress thread I would like to nominate Ilove for the nicest person ever award. You are truly an amazing and inspirational woman. flowers

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Tue 26-Jul-16 11:26:20

And ilove, you're a diamond smile I knew a family when I was at school who used to give holidays to kids from Belarus too, it was a wonderful thing.

ASheepInWolfsClothing Tue 26-Jul-16 11:27:38

I was just wondering where the thread went! I was following to see the dress after alteration but missed it sad
Ilove you are a truly good personflowers

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Tue 26-Jul-16 11:32:07

I don't remember the wedding dress, but I sent squares for blankets for the children.

Glad to hear they are doing OK.

I think the OP of the wedding dress thread was worried that the Daily Mail would find it and invade her privacy by publishing the story. It was pretty identifying! Lovely tale, though - although a sad indictment of the Daily Mail and how it travels here for stories.

The wedding was on 23rd just gone, I believe.

Well done, Ilove, you're a star.

LineyReborn Tue 26-Jul-16 11:33:48

Oh dear, trawls not travels

Queenbean Tue 26-Jul-16 11:34:06

The OP had the thread deleted and then went on to delete Ilove and block her from FB.

Something fishy!

ArmySal Tue 26-Jul-16 11:35:28

Is that true?!

BeautyGoesToBenidorm Tue 26-Jul-16 11:43:38
