It's easy to forget that there are less fortunate people around us every day. This month the YPC Team has decided to help the local community with donations of food that can help a person through the month.
Now the school holidays are here, many of us will have a few days to spend with the family and your beloved pet who is also part of the family.
People tend to think the Christmas is the busiest time for Battersea home, however they have already seen a 200% increase this years of the number of intake calls during the first week of the school holidays.
On Sunday 21st June the YPC girls will be getting down and dirty, swapping their stilettos for splattered trainers as they lather up for a mud bath of epic proportions.
My daughter Ahmani, and her school have been studying the effects of plastic on our oceans and as part of this they created this piece of art entitled 'The Ocean Cleanup' and to my delight Arlene and Ahmani bid at the silent auction and won.
With the Easter break approaching, many of us will have a few days to relax, spend time with those we love and hopefully reflect a little on what 2015 has brought us so far. At this time of year I know I have a lot to be thankful for, which is why it is important to spare a thought for the many vulnerable people out there going through hard times, for whom this Easter might not bring so much contentment.
I'm pretty chuffed to have received a special thanks card from the official Movember guys.

How and why? - I hear you ask.
YPC Group has been a proud and consistent high lender for Kiva since late 2009.

The boys at YPC will be entering the Estate Agent Foundation (EAF) football tournament this Sunday 17th June 2012 at Wembley Goals.
The EAF combat the causes of homelessness and in doing so support charities such as St. Mungos, Shelter and Broadway. Homelessness is rife in the UK, over 3,500 people slept rough last year in London, this is half the number of rough sleepers in the whole of UK.
It's now 3 years since my book 'The 3+1 Plan' won the non-fiction Peoples Book Prize so when I saw the opportunity to put to such a good cause I jumped upon it.
