Money does not buy happiness, but giving away £2.7m can help

Posted in

They say that money does not buy happiness. Getting and having I agree with. But if you can use or give your money to help others, then this can bring happiness to them as well as to you. As I travel the world, I see how money can help others less fortunate than ourselves in many ways.

Visiting Our Lesotho School

Posted in

Twelve of us arrived Tue 9th at Mokoallong High School to be greeted by almost 400 children singing and dancing.

Seeing the BT PlayPump in action was really amazing. They love their roundabout and their smiley faces show how happy they are as the spin around. Other children push each other to get to the tap to fill their bottles.

Later on we walked around the classrooms giving each child fruit, biscuits and sweets.

Opposite the school we visited an HIV care centre and listened to the amazing work they have been doing.

Covent Garden Juice Points

I was walking around Covent Garden on the way to a meeting and spotted this EDF Energy Juice Point.  I had read about them before, but this was the first time I had seen one in use. A few other passers by also stopped to look.

Recycle your Christmas Cards

Posted in

In the UK it is expected that 1 billion Christmas cards are thrown away each year. The Woodland Trust goal is to recycle from their collecting points around 1 million cards. I wonder what happens to the remaining cards?
