Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

On October 5th this year I will be celebrating 50 lucky years. I want to make my birthday mean something and there's nothing I really need ( apart from £20k or so of Lipo 😀) so instead of prezzies, I'd love you to consider making a donation to a remarkable charity called 28 Too Many for whom I recently became an Ambassador.

28 Too Many is a small charity that punches well above its weight. It works to end the horrific practice of FGM - Female Genital Mutilation, which is still practised widely in Africa, The Middle East  and Asia.

Like most of us, I moan about my body.  But like it or hate it - it's MINE. Mine to celebrate, mine to enjoy and no one tells me what I can or can't do with it. Not all women have had that choice. And the damage done through FGM goes way beyond anything physical. The emotional as well as physical scars are unimaginable and I for one want to try to help in some small way and work with 28 Too Many to make FGM a  tragic piece of past history not a grim part of the present and future for so many little girls and young women. 

Please dig deep and thank you with all my heart - from a middle aged but still smoking hot lady!
