Wonderful Women Interview with Alix Wilton Regan, Actress & Founder of Charitable Organisation PLAY 4 CALAIS
Alix Wilton Regan is an award-winning British actress and voice-over and the founder of charitable organisation PLAY 4 CALAIS.
I'm honoured to be an ambassador for Oxfam UK and equally excited to share my involvement in 'Dressed by the Kids Day'.
Is it a cat, is it a bird? No it's me, Honest Mum wearing a mask to a ball her kid Xander chose! What am I going on about you cry?
Hosting you're own jumble sale is a great way to raise money for charity and have a spring clean at the same time!
This Sunday was the first day of spring and the sunniest we've had since last summer, so there couldn't have been a more perfect day to head to Sheffield and take part in the incredible Sport Relief's Games. Ready...Steady...Go!
Wednesday saw me slide (literally) as the roads were so icy over to STEP in Leeds, a charity committed to helping the elderly.
It's that time again bloggers, a chance to link up the posts which make you proud. As always come link up your pieces, old, new and as many as you like and share the blog love.
I am incredibly honoured that Sport Relief have asked me to become an ambassador for the Sport Relief Games.
So this week is an important one as I'm linking up two posts which mean a lot to me. First up I am touched that Emily Beckoff of International Elf Service asked me if she could share a post on her brush with breast cancer to help encourage others to check their breasts. Please don't miss her piece HERE. The other post is an exciting announcement that I am a Sport Relief ambassador. I was truly honoured when they asked me and together with my family, we will be walking for 3 miles at the Sheffield Games.
I've pondered a while whether I should write this post, air my views and explore a subject that frankly, needs more airing and exploring. A grey area I've shied away from writing. For fear of being judged, of being considered 'too white' to have experienced racism, for fear of not being taken seriously.
As women, born, raised and living in the Western world we are so incredibly fortunate. A fact many of us take for granted - I know I do. It's incredibly easy to get caught up in our so called 'First World Problems'. Traffic jams, broken boilers and impending deadlines all pale into insignificance compared to many womens' lives in the developing world, for whom war, poverty and disease is a daily reality. If you are keen to support women in these situations, one of the ways you can do something to make a difference is by rocking one the super cool tops from the Blogzine Selfish Mother.
After a mild December, the mercury has dramatically dropped in recent weeks. Winter has well and truly arrived, people!
Tuesday was one of my life highlights. I was honoured to be asked to speak at Mosaic, a charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007.
It's time for Wonderful Women, a regular series that features incredible and inspiring women whom I have had the pleasure of interviewing. This week, I am speaking to Chloe Brett the Programmes Director of Street Child, which is a vital charity aiming to create educational opportunity for some of the world's most vulnerable children.
It's time for the latest Wonderful Women interview, which is one of my favourite features on this blog - celebrating all the incredibly inspiring and kick-ass women out there!
If there is one thing Patience Brewster is, it is an honest mum. Motherhood always came first, now and back in the late 70’s early 80’s, what she refers to as the dark ages, at a time when it was not so easy to work at home. No daycare at first, no computers. But it provided the best of both worlds as she illustrated children’s books with babies on her desk, and as her children got older, painted for galleries and for stationery companies and then designs for a huge international gift company.
