We are grateful and delighted to support Children with Cancer UK through the sale of Between Heather and Grass in memory of our nephew Jamie Baker.
It was lovely to make our first donation to this wonderful charity. Children with Cancer UK works hard to find better and kinder ways to treat children with cancer.
If you want to support the charity directly please visit their website here where you can find out how to make a difference.
We have also made our first donation to Dogs Trust, in memory of Flynn, Fergal, Seamus and Ruby.
Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and has been caring for dogs in need for more than 128 years. They take in dogs that have been abandoned or handed in by owners who could no longer care for them and find them new, loving forever homes.
They have micro-chipped more than 1.1 million dogs and neutered more than 827,000 dogs since 1999 and provided special foster homes for dogs from families fleeing domestic violence. In addition to these services they run educational programmes in schools, training programmes for owners and actively campaign on dog welfare-related issues.
To find out more about their work or to support Dogs Trust directly, please visit their website here.

The sea retreats as the sun rises, leaving ripples in sand and glittering water. It’s great to be back on the beach. Pearl runs after balls and catches them mid-air. Eivor walks more quietly and gazes past the headland. We both rest our eyes on the mountains and hear a gentle voice saying Stay, stay a little longer.
