Can you spare £5 a month for Woodlarks – YES you can!

The only charity I support (it is a long story) is Woodlarks. It is an amazing organisation which provides severely handicapped folks with probably their only opportunity to enjoy a holiday each year. This is not a fluffy kitten fashionable charity. Keeping it going is hard work and the team at Woodlarks are all total heroes. 

Now I ask can you spare £5 a month? Or even £10 a month?  I shall keep asking until I find enough people who say yes. Woodlarks has a special swimming pool for its campers which needs to be very well heated and that costs money. £15,000 a year.

And so it has launched an appeal asking those who can afford £5 a month or even £10 a month to make out a standing order to keep the pool heated and going.

I will kick this off with a £10 a month pledge. If 124 others make the same pledge then I shall stop banging on about this. Until then, I shall not let up.

Please help, this is not a fashionable charity or one with celebs backing it. If you can spare £5 or even £10 a month make the Woodlarks pledge now.

Welcome to Scarborough, Congratulations you have met the NYLRF: keine Arbeit nicht frei

Those crazy acronyms from Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s Russia are back in vogue. Welcome to Britain 2020. And specifically welcome to Scarborough and the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum (NYLRF) a body comprised of freedom hating little men and little women from the Ambulance service, Fire Brigade, the NHS and the local councils. The Police are also members but rarely attend as they are too busy taking a knee.
