I realise that supporting charities is a very personal act and this post shows a little of what I, and others, do to support a few of them.
The charity that I currently support on a regular basis is Thrive which is a horticultural charity which uses gardening to change lives. I have a link to it here under A Good Cause.
I tend not to keep many books so every now and again I have a sort out and take some to my local Barnardo’s bookshop. Needless to say that whilst there I always have a look round and never come home empty-handed!
Last Sunday I sadly found a dead fox, not Fox Newton or Missy, on the allotments. It was in a really pitiful state and had clearly died from mange, which if untreated causes a lingering death. The National Fox Welfare Society shows how they help treat this terrible condition.
Charities have been hard-hit in recent months and suffered a dramatic decline in direct donations. As you can see there a number of other ways in which we can all help with some of them, such as doing a blog like Charity Shop Tourism, costing little more than our goodwill and time.
Have a good weekend!
