A social cause I care about

Charity begins at home – ensuring that children in the UK are not hungry and have access to education are two causes that I feel very strongly about. We regularly donate at our local food bank and I involve my children in the process of choosing the food / creating reverse advent calendars to raise awareness. In the past, I have been a reading volunteer in schools and donate books to schools in need.
