Many foodbanks in the UK are run by The Trussell Trust. The following comes from their website: The Trussell Trust is a poverty charity founded on Christian principles. We work with people of all faiths and none, but are inspired to do what we do by Jesus’ words: “For I was hungry and you gave … Continue reading Foodbanks
After raving about the toilet rolls I buy it occurred to me that there are probably other products that I think are fab. Today's is the collapsible coffee cup. We're all being encouraged, quite rightly, not to use takeaway cups. Even if they could be recycled (they can't) it's far better to not use them … Continue reading Awesome Product#2

On the way through ‘Taurus Crafts’ caught our eye and children’s activities were mentioned. Thinking that it might be … Continue reading A Surprise in the Forest!

While I personally think we could pay more tax in order to meet the needs of those who suffer, I appreciate that it would not be … Continue reading Fundraising for Charity

In my 1978 Oxford English Dictionary the definition (apart from the one about medicines available by prescription only) it is defined and ‘morally correct’. By the time we get to my 1990 copy which is, … Continue reading What Does Ethical Mean?
About me I am a woman of a certain age (not 60 yet!) who lives in Bristol. I’ve lived almost my whole life in Bristol, with a short sojourn in Cornwall in my teens. I have four passions and several interests so I hope I will have plenty to write about. My passions are my … Continue reading About Me
