We provide free safe reconstructive surgery to children born with cleft lips & palates.


I was lucky enough to attend a fundraising carol concert in December 2014 organised by Operation Smile. As well as being a lovely social event it was both moving and life affirming.

More than 200,000 children are born with a severe cleft condition every year- meaning that they may be unable to eat, speak, smile or socialise. Operation Smile's philosophy is to change a child's life forever through an operation that can take just 45 minutes and cost around £150.

My love of vintage and shabby chic ( and redecorating my kitchen!) inspired me to make little muskeeter themed hearts to try to raise some funds for this fantastic charity and to help a little bit towards the amazing Burketeers' total.
