Making a change

I know I'm writing this post at the end of April, so technically it isn't the beginning of the year anymore - however, when 2015 started, I said I was going to do more activities. I know saying 'activities' is quite an open word and could mean anything, but I just wanted to do more. Do more charity events, do more active events, do more for other people and just get involved more. I didn't want to get to the end of 2015 and be like okay so, what have I actually done this year that's helped other people? Here's a few things that are already sticking out for me:

Charity event

In March, I took part in the Crazy Hats Walk with my work team. The walk is an annual event held at the same place every year and raises money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. I have taken part in the walk a few times because Breakthrough is a charity that is very close to my heart. Charity events always get to me, because you know everyone there has been affected one way or another. Reading everyone's reasons for being there and taking part were inspiring yet emotional.

When we'd finished the walk, it was a great feeling to know I'd helped towards making a difference and knew I had achieved something.

If you live local I would definitely recommend attending the Crazy Hats Walk, nothing beats a fresh Sunday morning walk, especially when it's for such an amazing charity.
