On Christmas 2005 David Headworth (brother and uncle to us) and Marlynne (his wife to be) were exploring Australia. We sent them out a Christmas package to open on the beach on Christmas Day, which apart from an array of crackers, silly hats etc included an inflatable 6ft crocodile (shown here with David).
It obviously created lots of strange looks and much fun for the day for David and Marlynne, and it has become a part of our family's 'folklore'.
So you see our choice of a crocodile was an easy decision really, and now you know why it means so much to our family!Unfortunately,In December 2007, David died prematurely of a rare leukaemia aged just 40. In the course of 8 months, David had his 40th Birthday, was diagnosed with a rare and acute form of the disease, got married, was there for the birth of his first child and then passed away two weeks before Christmas.
He didn't get a chance to see his son grow up. I want to raise the money to help make sure that other leukaemia sufferers, get a chance of long term remission from some of the rarer forms of this nasty disease.
