ANNOUNCEMENT: My Family’s Challenge + How YOU Can Help

Heyo there people 💙✌️

I’m really, really excited to share this post with you all today. It’s something that’s really important to me and I would so appreciate any support you can offer as friends and members of this amazing community we call the blogosphere 😊

My family and I are taking on a bit of an epic challenge this year and I’m here to tell you all about it and to let you know how YOU can get involved! Hopefully we’ll all have some fun along the way…

Slightly crazily, we’re driving around the UK coast on only £10 a day (£5 food and £5 fuel for a family of five 😬)  to raise money for CatZero. CatZero are a charity transforming the lives of young people and making a huge difference in their futures. They use sailing as an intense learning environment to teach self-confidence, resilience, teamwork and other invaluable life skills.  As someone passionate about creating a better world for her generation and generations to come, as well as sailing and the difference it makes, CatZero are an inspiration to me.

Round The UK On A Tenner A Day is 100% a bit crazy and it’s definitely gonna be an adventure, but we’re all up for it and would love for you to follow us on our journey. Here’s our challenge video to explain a bit more about what we’re doing and how 👇 

Now for some ways that YOU can get involved!

  • Donate directly to CatZero! We’ve set up a giving page which makes donating online super quick and easy 😄


  • Share our story on your blog/social media! Here are the links to our TwitterInstagram and FaceBook. Please feel free to spread the word and help us get Round The UK On A Tenner A Day out there in whatever way you can.


  • Do your own mini fundraiser….whether it’s a cake sale….a sponsored walk or cycle…dye your hair…sell something you don’t need anymore…..whatever.. be creative! You can donate any money raised directly to CatZero through our giving page and support the life changing programmes they run for young people.

    •If you live on the UK coast then definitely get in touch and maybe we can arrange to meet up…we’re always grateful for a driveway to park on for a night as we pass through and it would be awesome to meet some of you guys along the way…



Feel free to do as little or as much as you would like or are able to do – just knowing I have your support and encouragement means a lot 🙂

If you have any ideas or questions please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below or to drop me an email via my contact page. Thank you all for reading ♥️🤘

Deeds Not Words ~ A Lil’ Rant

When I sat down to post today, I was going to share some quotes that have inspired me recently, but then I thought differently. I am surrounded by people talking about things whilst the problem just gets worse and, although I definitely see the importance of communicating and sharing thoughts, I also see the need for action.

My Dad has always told me  ‘deeds not words’ and I believe he’s right. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the darkness around us, but we have to use the emotion, that anger, sadness and confusion, to make a difference.

So that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to put my energy into solving problems and creating solutions and I want you to do the same. This applies to everything – relationships & friendships as well as bigger issues that affect our families, communities and society.
