Kind words for a political opponent

Could you be kind to an opposing political candidate? This wonderful story of kindness in politics came from an anonymous election candidate. “Standing on the stage as the results of the election were announced, I was tired and emotional (to say the least). I knew that despite my personal disappointment I would need to follow […]

Jubilee party

Lots of kindness and community spirit for the Jubilee Street Party where I live today. There were a group of volunteers who got us all organised, put together a list of food items, arranged the gazebos and BBQs. On the day, we all brought along different food items, chatted to neighbours, played with the kids […]

I am so thrilled to be taking part in Women’s Voices 2022 for International Women’s Day organised by Media Trust today. I’ll be using my professional knowledge to help a charity improve their comms.

Boosting confidence by mentoring

“With the small amount of spare time I have, I mentor people who need a self-esteem boost. It makes me feel good when I see others have the confidence to shine in their own working lives.” This is such a kind thing for Marie Preece of Two Green Magpies to do. So many of us […]

The kindness of bookkeepers

Alexis spoke to a bookkeeper recently to plead for help with managing her books – “she was more than happy to help but told me I didn’t need her, or the software I was struggling to use. Instead she explained a little about how accountants, bookkeepers and tax works for small business and told me […]
