juliabag.jpgCongratulations to Tracy Tuason from the Philippines, who was the winner of our 'win a Mulberry handbag' competition with Handbag.com. We asked you all the spread the word about the Handbag Amnesty, a great charity initiative in conjunction with Cancer Research UK. We were really touched that Tracy was willing to blog about the campaign despite being so far away from the UK. In a stroke of fate, we let her know she was the winner the day before her birthday, so hopefully that £250 Mulberry Julia was a nice extra pressie!

Thank you so much to all the people who blogged or commented with support for the campaign. Keep reading for a little extra thank you from Handbag.com. Also, sorry our announcement isn't as swish as this one!

"We at handbag.com would like to 'Thank you' for supporting handbag amnesty. Your participation over the last few weeks, has meant we have been able raise over £210,000 for vital funds towards Cancer Research UK. handbag.com is very proud of this achievement which would not have been made possible without your help! Best wishes," Claire Higgins, Head of Marketing at www.handbag.com

Though October is coming to a close, there's still time to get involved in the amnesty. Donate a bag you no longer use to a Cancer Research UK shop, or visit the website to bid on celebrity bags. I'll fight you for Keira's Prada...
