Following the success of Six Strings For Sara we are thrilled to announce that Bill Nelson has kindly composed and recorded a new track to raise funds for The Sara's Hope Foundation entitled "A Million Whistling Milkmen".

Image

"A Million Whistling Milkmen",it's about the 'milk of human kindness' using the metaphor of other-worldly milkmen as 'angels' delivering kindness and compassion to the world, fresh each day. It seems ideally suited to Sara's Hope Foundation's goal" - Bill Nelson September 2008

All proceeds from this unique and wonderful download will go directly to Sara's Hope Foundation (Registered Charity no 1123099)- If you would like to find our more about the project please visit www.sarashopefoundation.co.uk

A million thanks to Bill for his continued and fantastic support and to Dave Graham for the artwork design.

Really hope the sales go well on this for such a worthy cause.

Thanks so much for your kind words - the support that Sara`s charity has received from the Dreamsville community has been heart warming and overwhemimg This has been a very special week for our family and the Sara`s Hope Foundation - first of all Bill, an inspiration to us all celebrates his 60 th birthday :lol: Bill`s support means so much to Julie and I

We are thrilled and excited with the release of A Million Whistling Milkmen - sales are going well by the way :)
Julie and I celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary and held a party for a few friends - of course there was a sprinkling of Bills music throughout the night - we were also overwhelmed with people`s kindness and rather than give Julie and I a gift we suggested that a donation to Sara`s charity would be really appreciated - the donations came to over £500!!!! The target to purchase the land gets closer each day and we hope to have the funds by Spring 2009 to complete the first stage. The 68 local Rotarian Clubs are extremely supportive of the project and over the last twelve months Mark Johnson (a Trustee) and I have been presenting the Foundation to a selection of the clubs - the response has been very positive and we are hopeful that we may receive a donation of £150,000 !!! So its exciting times
On Tuesday we found out that our application for a `marketing and publicity `grant from the Awards For All Lottery Fund has been successful and a cheque for £7,400 would be paid into the charity account early in 2009 - this is terrific news as it will give us the opportunity to take the project to a more professional level
So once again a sincere thank you to our special friend Bill and you guys for your kindness, care, sensitivity and overwhelming support
Kind regards
Ged and Julie
