My February Charity

My chosen charity this month is Julian House, a Bath-based charity that helps the homeless. There were several reasons why this one made it to the top of my list this month and the first one is pretty obvious.

After a relatively mild winter, the weather this month has been awful. It has been freezing cold and rained almost daily. I know this because I have been layering up with an extra blanket on the bed at night, I’ve had the heating on more than usual and I’ve avoided going outside so that I stay warm and dry – three simple things that those on the streets don’t have as an option.

Secondly, I watched the Professor Green documentary recently, ‘Hidden and Homeless’ and I thought it was brilliant at highlighting what ‘homeless’ actually looks like and the help that is needed. It is so much more than just handing over a set of keys to a bedsit and it appears that funding is woefully lacking.

Finally, I like that this is a local charity. In Bath, I have often given money to those needing a bed in one of Julian House’s hostels but this donation will hopefully go towards their other services too.

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
