The Covid-19 pandemic has affected so many people in so many different ways and my heart has gone out to all of them. In particular, I have felt deeply for the children who come from disadvantaged backgrounds and are going hungry. FareShare believes that no good food should go to waste. They redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals. They are doers. They are a community. They change lives.
On 17 February 2021, we raised £360 to support this incredible charity.
Ashtead Cancer Group
My dear friend, Colette t'Hart set up this support group for cancer patients, survivors and carers in 2014. The group meets regularly for meetings, walks and other fun outings. They are there for you, when you are ready and whenever you need them. I supported this group for a couple of years, but unfortunately had to cancel the class
Cancer takes many lives, and it is especially devastating when a child is lost. I dedicated this class to beautiful Caitlyn, who tragically passed away on 21 February 2015. She touched the lives of many people and will be loved and missed always.
On Wednesday 21 October 2015 we raised £672 for Shooting Star Chase Children's Hospital.

Refuge supports more than 6,000 clients, helping them rebuild their lives and overcome many different forms of violence and abuse. On 27 October 2014, we raised £280 to support their incredible work.
