Growing as a person is all about the bigger picture.

Growing as a person is, I think, all about the bigger picture.

I watched last night’s US Open tennis final. Simply wow.

Mixed in with all of the other details it was interesting to hear the match comentator (a grand slam winner) saying that they, like one of the girls, had been told at school to pull back on tennis to concentrate on their academic studies. She said, with a smile in her voice, “I ignored the advice too”.

These girls’ resilience started early! Joy taken from a hobby is just as important as the rest of the jigsaw puzzle. The whole person is the whole point. Well done for ALL of the hard work!

Winston's Wish

Our young people need to be supported in so many ways as they navigate growing up. Winston's Wish was established in 1992 to support children at times of trauma. It's thankfully one of those that has survived the UK's financial roller coaster. It works in partnership with families and the community to provide comfort and care for our most vulernable. Thank heavens!
