Silent Sunday: Hanging On To Light

I am very grateful for all the amazing work the health service and everyone else who is making a positive difference is currently doing.

Following the example of Spain, France, The Netherlands and India, the UK is now organising a #clapforourcarers event on Thursday 26th March at 8pm where we can show our appreciation with a massive round of applause. You can clap your hands on your doorstep, balcony or indoors and share it online through social media.

Hoping you all stay safe and well,

with love from Xenia xxx
