    A proud granddad

    Hi all,

    I said earlier I would post about my 13 year old granddaughter's amazing achievement. She normally never shuts up except when she is sleeping so to go 24 hours in our shoes was a marvellous achievement. Her school was very supportive as the idea was to make the challenge difficult.

    Here are her comments.Attachment 701Attachment 702Attachment 703

    HI Dad,

    Here’s some pics of Hollys silence. A couple of quotes you can give are “it was horrible when people wouldn’t wait for me to finish writing what I wanted to say – they were just too impatient.” “the hardest thing i’ve done, I love to talk and would hate to lose my voice”.

    The amount raised in total (inc online and offline) is £426.60

    And the person we dealt with – details below and we did state that we wanted the money to go to Lincoln and mentioned your name.

    Well done Holly;

    She should have used your I Pad with the male Yorkshire voice on, LOL.

    Love Terry

    That is just fantastic Barry. No wonder you are proud. It is incredibly impressive for a 13 year old to manage that - and the pictures are fantastic.
