Do you like kids?
If so, then perhaps you will help me with something close to my heart.....
Do you know there are 100 million children (Yes, 100 million) living on the streets of the World?
This is only a 'guesstimate' it could be more.
This is absolutely shocking, and would be worse if it was not for the wonderful work of agencies such as OXFAM, CHRISTIAN AID, THE RED CROSS, and many, many more that roam the World trying to rescue the lives of children, give them food and a place to live, and in some cases, schools.
But above all else they try to give homeless children Love, and HOPE.
There is another wonderful Charity that dedicate their whole existence to Children around the World.
For every crisis, they are there, with food, medicine, tents, and comfort, to help children and their Parents, and for those who have no Parents, they provide love and tenderness in helping children to come to terms with their loss of family.
You can read more about the organization, and set up your donation in one simple move. We are not telling you what to give, that is up to you. As a guide, would you miss US$5 or £5 a month from your bank account?
The UK is one of the world’s richest countries, yet rates of poverty here are rising – that means more children growing up without the essentials they need to fulfil their potential.
Children are going to sleep each night without a hot meal, in cold homes and sometimes without their own bed to sleep in.
Poverty not only means that some children go to school tired and hungry, it can also ruin their childhoods and cuts their life chances short.
Donate to our UK work today and you could help us reach UK children and their families before problems become too hard to solve.
Your support could give a child a new bed and blankets or the chance to eat a hot meal so they can concentrate in school.
Together, we can ensure all children get a fair start in life.

I was born in the fair city of Dundee, County Angus, Scotland in 1935, and was adopted by Jean and John Weddell; first in foster care, then officially adopted by them when I was 4 years old. I was lucky enough to spend my childhood on a Scottish farm in the county of Midlothian, especially in the early years of WW2, when we still had loads of fresh vegetables and milk and eggs on the farm.
I retired from professional playing in 2005 and spend my free time writing, entertaining my grandchildren, and my
As you will appreciate, if you do any writing, or have your own website, it takes lots of time to keep everything up to date and try to introduce new features, so if you have 'been here before' and see nothing different please be patient, for I am writing new content to upload.
Currently, I have two published books on digital download at
'Confessions of a trombone player'
You can look inside each book for free, and if you do decide to buy, they are both low priced because they are e-books.
BONUS! "SPITFIRE" My latest work, yet to be published. You get to read it here before anyone else! FREE!!!
