Volunteers needed!

Blue Peter Whizz Kidz Appeal

Volunteers are needed to work at the Blue Peter Whizz Kidz
Go Cardz Appeal fulfilment Centre in Victoria.

Whizz-Kidz have devised an innovative and creative project.
They will ask Blue Peter viewers to design and create handmade
Christmas cards which will then be sold in Tesco
stores throughout the UK on Whizz-Kidz’ behalf. The Cards
will be sold for a minimum donation of £1 for 2 cards. The
money raised by the appeal will fund a revolutionary new
project for Whizz-Kidz. Whizz-Kidz aims to establish a network
of clinics around the UK where a disabled child will
have their assessment and fitting with a therapist and can
take home their chair on the same day.

They are looking for volunteers to help man their Go-
Cardz fulfilment centre from the beginning of September
2010, when they will begin putting together card making materials
for Blue Peter viewers, right through to December
2010, when the handmade cards will be distributed to Tesco
stores nationwide. The fulfilment centre will operate 7 days
a week from 9am - 1pm & 2pm - 6pm.

They estimate they will need over 1500 volunteers to help
man the fulfilment centre. The fulfilment centre will be
based at Whizz Kidz HQ at Elliot House, 10-12 Allington
Street, Victoria, SW1E 5EH.

A volunteer diary planner has been set up with Volunteer
spot, where volunteers can choose and book online the
dates that are most convenient for them. Please follow this
link to sign up to volunteer:-

The dates I have volunteered for are:
2nd October, 6th November & 4th December 2010 (morning shift).

Creative Design Team call!!

So my favorite hybrid site are looking for people to join their creative design team - I couldn't belive what I was reading!  I'm so excited!  These are my entries let me know what you think....

Holiday review part 2

The 80's Rewind Festival was fabulous and quite surreal at times.  Henley on Thames is very very pretty and I could easily live there as well but would need to be a higher earner to fit into that lifestyle - but one can dream? The whole weekend played music from that era including all the food stands, bars and the fun fair.  All the live music was pretty good but my highlights would be 10cc, Level 42, The beat, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Odyssey, The weather Girls.  The collaboration between Go West , ABC and Tony Hadley was pretty smooth Tony Hadley as a young man I has a crush on him but what young girl didn't? As an older man he reminds me a bit of a Tom Jones in the making he can still belt out the tunes and I was very impressed that he sang a hit record of his nemesis Duran Duran's Rio he also did covers of songs by The Killers, King of Leon and the Hives. He was very personable and got the crowd going even when it started to pour with rain for the last 2 hours! Damon loved it, we popped his cherry so to speak as he is a festival virgin!  But we didn't camp we stayed in a hotel.  This is definitely a very grown up festival as you would expect from somewhere like Henley - There were people mooring their boats and yachts then coming in to join the fun...
Lots of families and lots of people dressed up!  Damon said to me "Only you could stand in the middle of a field eating a cupcake and drink champagne"  Well of course dahling!  Is there any other way to do festival??

Holiday review part 1

Well It has been a crazy busy with work since I have been back and I haven't had a minute to myself really!  So last night I loaded up all the photos that I wanted to share and I am now at my dest at work blogging!  Shhh don't tell anyone - but I think it's the only way I will get to blog.

So I had a lovely break in France but it rained most of the time so it prevented us from doing the tours my Mother in Law had planned so the following pictures were taken when the sun peeped out!  The house is just lovely it is an old stone barn that they have renovated over the years and they have kept the decor in keeping with the age of the barn.  There is also a stream that runs along the edge of the garden and Opium the horse lives next door in the paddock.  The other neighbour is Monsuir Le Reddet the wine producer and lovely it is too! The bedrooms are all decorated in true french vintage style that I LOVE I could easily live here all the time and I cannot wait to go again next year, its so peaceful and the sky at night is dark and with no street light and you can see all the stars.  I didn't get to stop in Paris in the end as Shelia (MIL) seamlessly corodinated the journey so that there was minimal waiting time between tansport changes - thats how fab she is! I want to do a 1 day stop next visit, it went so fast but I hope you like the pictures.
