We had some cool visitors today. Savitri, Lynn and Hannah from Find Your Feet have been here for a meeting about the latest project that the innocent foundation has been funding. Here they are giving rather good pose with Kate, innocent foundation manager, and our Catherine.
The innocent foundation and Find Your Feet are old friends: they’ve worked together for 10 years now, ever since the innocent foundation began in 2004. After the meeting Savitri, who heads up Find Your Feet in India, gave a talk updating us all on the project. It’s helping over 300 women in a remote area of Northern India to address the root causes of their poverty and empowering them to build secure futures for themselves and their families. Development is a long journey, as Savitri explained to us, but the results so far are hugely impressive.
Thanks for coming in, ladies, and for being brilliant. It was great to see you as always.
PS Keen to do your bit to help? How about hosting a Curry for Change evening with your friends or family? Or anyone really. Workmates or neighbours or those people you met on that internet forum for canal and barge enthusiasts. You can eat in or out, and just need to ask guests to make a donation, which will go to support the brilliant work that Find Your Feet do. Sign up online and you’ll receive a pack containing recipes and free spices from Natco Foods. Every pound you raise will be doubled by Natco, and the host who raises the most will win a masterclass with Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar. If even the thought of free spices doesn’t spur you into wanting to cook, you can head to a restaurant or get a takeaway, and ask everyone to thrown in a few extra quid for charity. What a curry on.
