Hi - as some of you will know, our lovely friend Carey Lander from Camera Obscura is very ill. Sadly, she's not going to get better.

She's written about it here:
https://www.justgiving.com/Carey-Lander/

Even since creating her Just Giving page, Carey's condition has deteriorated and she's currently in hospital. Her focus now is on raising as much money as possible and she constantly monitors the running total. If you felt able to chip in, she and the folks suffering from this shitty cancer would very much appreciate it.

Ta. x

I'm flogging some nice bits of FA Cup Final memorabilia to add to Carey's justgiving pot.

If you know any memorabilia heads (esp Arsenal or Newcastle ones) please pass this on. Cheers!

Having rallied a little after surgery, Carey has now taken another turn for the worse.

Again, any donations to this would be dearly appreciated. When she's well enough to check the total, every increase gives her great cheer.

Ta.

Very sad news today that Carey died this morning. Her courage and dignity in recent times inspired and touched many. Her Just Giving campaign is still taking donations (see above for the link). R.I.P.

Hi everyone,

I'm auctioning an extremely rare 1997 homemade Camera Obscura demo tape to raise money for Carey's chosen cancer charity, Sarcoma UK. It's a 7 ebay day listing. Full details here:

The actual listing is here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/-/221917985749?

Any help spreading the word would be much appreciated.

cheers, brogues

Hi folks.

Today would have been Carey's 34th birthday.

The fundraising she started for Sarcoma UK is still ongoing and we're determined to reach £100k.

All donations sincerely appreciated - the charity are absolutely chuffed at the funds raised so far and it also means a lot to Carey's family and friends.
