Your donations to Don’t Walk Past Group

Having fun & supporting good causes!

When I first started running online workshops I decided that it would be good to give something back and donate some of the workshop fee to local organisations that are doing great things in our community. We are currently making donations to Don’t Walk Past group, a great organisation that go out 5 nights a week come rain or shine and distribute essentials like toiletries and clothes as well as providing hot meals, drinks and support to the homeless community in Manchester.

Thanks to all you lovely people who have joined my workshops, here are just some of the items you’ve purchased so far:

  • 100 coffee cups
  • 1 megapack of 40 dog food pouches
  • Catering tin of coffee
  • 2 large boxes of wet wipes
  • 24 toothbrushes
  • 30 toiletry packs (soap, shampoo, shower gel)
  • 48 pairs of boxer shorts
  • 1 camping roll
  • 12 beanie hats
  • 100 aluminium foil food containers


It makes me so happy to be able to buy these essentials after each workshop so a huge thank you!
