In these times of soaring costs of living, I feel we all need to show that we can help each other through the horrific times ahead. One thing that was so noticeable from that moment two years ago when the Lockdown started, was the tremendous surge in community, the charge of people who went out of their way to help others.

Do you remember the mass of people who signed up to help? Be that in delivering food to the vulnerable, assisting at food banks and the like, there was aseemingly never ending procession of stories of people showing what we all need now, let alone back then - community.

My own way of doing something is indulgent because I do love my cycling and birding. I love seeing people smile or laugh at my tie, yellow wellies and 'friends' on my bike. In a small way I hope that I help people.

The other way of course is by asking you to donate to the charities I am supporting this year and thanks to each and every one of you who has already done so.

Please give a little something and make my day!
