I found out about little Rose via Little Cotton Rabbits.

I also so want to help. And I would love you to help so that it ends up as WE HELP ROSE. Wouldn’t you hope for a support and some sort of participation from others if that would be your child in Rose’s place? I would. It doesn’t necessarily need to be something big – £1 from one and each of you reading this post could end up in a round and very much appreciated, even more so needed sum of money that could very likely make a real difference to at least 4 people, that’s the Willcocks family. If you can – participate: spread the word, donate…

As my participation I’ve got Davy, a sweet little mohair teddy. He stands at 12.5cm or 4.9inches tall and comes in a small wooden box along with some felt goodies: a tiny snail called Slow (Davy’s best friend), a Christmas tree, a party hat and some yummy sugar coated doughnuts with a bottle of milk (teddies favourite comfort food 😉 ) that fits in a handy basket. Davy can sit, move his little arms and legs + comes with a hand knitted hat and a scarf to keep him warm. There’s one more item, not shown, that will come in the box – a little surprise!

Davy is up for an auction here. And he will go to the person who offers the highest bid by 11pm 22/11/2007. Use the comments bellow for your offers. All proceeds will go to the Rose fund.


Here he’s, ready for a big mission with devoted friend Slow by his side:



ready to party:


ready to be your friend:


+ that handy basket:


All of it can be yours, or a present for somebody…

Thank you for taking your time, HUGE THANKS to those who want to help and good luck!

    What a gorgeous bear – I love his little pet and all of the details that you’ve created to travel with him. I’d love to give him a loving home and would like to bid £35. Thanks!

    This is Rose’s mummy here. I just wanted to say thank you to you for auctioning the adorable Davy for Rose. A huge amount of work must have gone in to creating Davy and all his felt goodies, we are so grateful to you. I would also like to thank everyone who bids. The winning bidder will be a very lucky person indeed.

    Julie – a very first bidder (and helper!) deserves a little surprise of its own 😉

    Esme – a big hug to you all!

    Clementine – Davy because it means “beloved” so I guess yes – very much related to daddy too!

    Lucy, Kate, Fiona, Claire, Kristlah, Natascha – thank you thank you thank you!!!

    Thank you Dennis. Because of you we are now one step closer to realising our dream of Rose attending the therapy centre in the US. You really will make a difference to the life of our beautiful little girl.
