The January Kindness Auction is over ..and it was a HUGE success, we raised £177.50 in total, with half going to support our positive action projects, and half going to support a small charity, The Equality Trust, as chosen by the most successful Positive Action Auctioneer Aoifie, whose diet and healthy living advice raised £51
Here’s a quote from the fabulous lady herself, on the auction and why she chose The Equality Trust.
“I was very keen to get involved with Focallocal. I believe charity begins at home and there are plenty of people in need around us in London before we look further a field. As a health professional improving peoples health and happiness is my passion. There is increasing evidence that social inequality and racism has a detrimental effect on health independent of other factors such as diet, housing etc. That is why I chose to support a charity supporting equality in London. It was win win for me as I also got to give a dietary consultation to someone and the money also went to charity. I would highly recommend becoming part of Focallocal”
Thank you soo much to all of the generous and fun people who joined in. You can see all of their offers here
