Miriam Dean fund
Thursday's jumble sale at St Nic's was in aid of the Miriam Dean Fund, a small charity that helps some of the world's poorest people. Started by a baker just after the war, the charity now sends an amazing £150,000 overseas every year.
So, I was thrilled to be able to help by eating lots of yummy cakes, buying a couple of candles (for the power outage that I'm obsessed with) and some children's paint for McBaby. My elderly friend MrT also bought my mum a comedy book on how you lose your memory as you get older. I was hoping she'd forget to take it with her for comedy value, but she remembered on this occasion!
