A quick post to bring attention to a couple of good friends who are doing pretty amazing things for charidee.

Off go the dreads!
The very beautiful Sarah Scarlett, aka Skye Annelise, is chopping off her treasured dreads to raise money for the mental health charity Mind, an extremely worthwhile cause and an organisation that does amazing work. As someone who suffers from depression I am particularly determined that these guys get the recognition they deserve. Sarah's set he target for a mere £100, but I'm sure we can do much better than that. Donate with JustGiving here.

My very old friend Mr. Paul Smith is also doing something drastic to raise funds. He's going a full year without a drop of alcohol! Actually, he's being quite sensible and allowing himself five "golden ticket" days, which will be added onto the end of the year to make sure he's definitely getting the full 365 days in. But we have weddings to go to this year so I think this is a very wise approach. Paul's raising money for St. Peter and St. James, a hospice trust that is very close to my heart. Smiffy's into his third month now so dig deep and drop a couple of quid in - we're aiming to raise a nice round grand for the year. He's also using JustGiving to donate. And it's his birthday tomorrow too!
Down with this sort of thing!

If you're a UK taxpayer, don't forget to tick the GiftAid option to make your donation go even further.
