Hello everyone, we hope you all had a great day on Mother's Day! We went off for a family lunch to a beautiful National Trust property.
The National Trust preserves and promotes some of the most beautiful historic buildings and countryside in the UK, and people often don't realise that the trust is a charity.
We were really impressed to find out that they are actually the largest voluntary conservation organisation in the whole of Europe - imagine what treasures we might have lost if the National Trust wasn't looking after them?
I love how excited my dogs are when I get home from work – you can understand why they are called a ‘man’s best friend’! It made me think about how important this relationship must be between a person and their guide dog.
Did you know that there are currently over 5,000 guide dogs assisting blind or partially sighted people in the UK? I had no idea, so I tried to find out a little bit more about them from the leading charity Guide Dogs.
The noble honey bee does so much. They provide us with delicious honey, their honeycomb can be used for candles and their beeswax is often found in many cosmetic products. Most important of all they are crucial to the pollination process.
Bees may be experiencing tough times at the moment but tough times don’t last and with your help you would not only be helping a family but helping aid the survival of this great insect.
