Thanks everyone but I really did not intend on winning. What I am going to do is accept the voucher and then send Yabbas pregnant partner 10 in cash as they are in more need of it than me,

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to enter the competition and vote as I am sure it will be a great comfort for the family when they see how well regarded he was.

Good on you Iain and well done to all those who took part.  It was after all about taking part and not really about winning.

Spana has very kindly offered to send the gardening voucher to me so that I can send the value of the voucher to yabbas family.

It will be much appreciated. Its great to see the kindness of people on here.

Great news everyone.

Baby Yabba is here.

At 13:08 today Verity Grace was born. Mother and baby are doing well.

She almost timed it with the end of our photo competition :D

Beautiful names and congratulations to mum.

I'm hoping that the 3 winners have received their prizes by now but I've had no messages to say they have  ???
