This September I re-launched my fairtrade organic baby and children's range, renewed my trade license, subscribed to the Ethical Consumer magazine supported the global goals for sustainable development and baked cakes for Macmillan Cancer.

Thank you to Rob Harrison, Tim Hunt and the Ethical Consumer team for forwarding my September 2016 issue. I'm secretly hoping the team sign my copy next time.

My beloved mother was a ‘courageous woman, she was my first school of thought, love, compassion and my paradise.’
Mum was an extraordinarily humble, kind and charismatic lady.
She could strike up a conversation with anyone. An empathetic listener, amazing chef and gardener, she possessed a sharp wit and humour that would instantly lift your spirits.
