The week before this challenge started, the news was riddled with stories concerning acts of terrorism in the world but especially the attacks on London Bridge in June. It was horrendous what happened and I feel for the city of London and the families involved. I also feel for the Muslims in the UK who took an unbelievable amount of hate around that time.

This is … More 20 – Vulnerabil… I don’t want to talk about it actually.
The whole Fairtrade thing has been going on for a while now so I wasn’t as clueless about this one as some of the other challenges that I’ve done. I completed the part about buying Fairtrade things fairly easily. A cheeky Divine bar, some coffee and bananas were all on the menu through the week … More 18 – I bought a Divine bar, is the third world saved yet?

British culture is an interesting one and especially in the way it teaches us to interact with each other. In particular as a … More 14 – Courage to encourage
