It’s National Cupcake Week! And that means our Cupcakes & Cocktails Night for CLIC Sargent is fast approaching.

Keeping It In the Family

Well on Sunday I had to tell my mum just how awesome she is for Mother’s Day and today I’ve got two other family members I need to shout about. Yep, it’s all about my family this week. 1. My Dad. It’s his birthday. And he’s a great dad. And I forgot to put his...

Thanks to everyone who came to watch Finding Nemo with me yesterday (Sunday). With the total I collected from all you Pixar-loving people I’ve smashed my fundraising target, and have now raised £3,113! Yep, you read it right, £3,113!

How to Use Twitter for Charity Part 1: The Red Nose Day Effect

Or Twitter Lessons Every Charity Can Learn from Comic Relief I’m not suggesting that charities using Twitter should out and out copy what the team at Comic Relief does, but you gotta admit they got some serious social media style.

Chinese Elvis - Or Was He Michael McIntyre?

Chinese Elvis – Or Was He Michael McIntyre?

I know I’ve been cruel guys, you’ve all been dying to hear what Chinese Elvis was like at last week’s Chinese New Year shindig.  The politest thing I can say is that he brought a whole new dimension to The King. Possibly the strangest thing about him* was the uncanny resemblance he bore to comedian...
Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is Chinese New Year – the year of the Rabbit. I’ll admit to not knowing a whole lot about the traditions and meanings of the Chinese New Year, in fact, I don’t know a whole lot about Chinese traditions full stop.  But what better way can there be to learn them than by soaking...
Partying for CLIC Sargent Part 2

Partying for CLIC Sargent Part 2

Today was our Beat the Blues Bash for CLIC Sargent – slightly smaller turn out then we’d hoped for (we had greatly underestimated post-Christmas poverty!) – but still a lovely time.  With good friends, good company and lots of lovely bright pink CLIC Sargent balloons a good time is guaranteed. Unfortunately, I always forget how...

Beat the January Blues

It’s the start of the year, and that can only mean one thing: Everyone’s feeling a bit run down, a little bit poorly and is fed up of being cold.  Yep, a pandemic is sweeping the national and people everywhere are succumbing to severe cases of the January blues. So how can you go about beating...
