Surrounded by doom and gloom, as we seem to have been since March this year, it may seem silly to entitle an article “Release the Child Within” but we think that all of us should be able to act a little bit crazy every so often!
During the Covid 19 pandemic and lock down many charities, ourselves included, have had to cancel our ‘face to face’ fundraising activities. This is having a devastating effect on our finances, not to mention the fact that we are really missing interacting with all the lovely people who help us by organising and running events.
There are however ways you can help us (and other charities of course) which are purely online and require nothing more than for you to modify your online shopping processes. You shop; we benefit from a small donation. Win, win.
Would it surprise you to know that people between the ages of 25 and 34 are actually the LEAST likely to have offered their services as a volunteer? >.
We’ve all been affected by this strange year in different ways; some people may feel there’s been little difference in their daily lives, particularly if they were retired and not going out to work.

You’d have to have been living on the moon for the last month or so to not be aware that the whole of the UK, most of the world in fact, is living in the shadow of COVID-19. Our last blog gave you some hints on staying safe and keeping yourself protected from infection and now we’re going to give you some ideas to keep your mind and body busy.
There’s a lot of scaremongering going on in the media at the moment over ‘coronavirus’ – in particular the strain causing COVID-19 (named because the first instances of the disease emerged in 2019). We’re going to try and cut through the hysteria and provide you with simple, clear facts and ways you can minimise your own risk.
Is it just us, or does Christmas seem to start earlier and earlier with every passing year?
As soon as the gaudy Halloween decorations come down, it feels like the Christmas ones go up and the never-ending adverts peddling ‘all you need for a perfect Christmas’ appear on the telly.
Does the word fill you with dread and loathing?
Are you a ‘technophobe’?
Or do you love all the gadgets and gizmos out there?
Most people probably fall somewhere in the middle of those two extremes, perhaps a little cautious to adopt new technology but nevertheless recognising the advantages!
