FANCY having coffee with me on Wednesday morning? It will obviously be a virtual coffee, rather than face to face and it’s in aid of a wonderful cause – the Prince’s Trust campaign Women Supporting Women.
Personal empowerment is hugely important to me because it’s what the Slimpod programme is all about – empowering you take control over food, sugar empowering you to live and love your life !
This week the Trust is encouraging women to support women by holding virtual get-togethers called Brilliant Breakfast. But I’m renaming mine Brilliant Brunch because I know so many people don’t actually have breakfast (which is no big deal).
The aim is to raise money for young women in the UK who need our support, helping them to wake up to a more positive future.
Young people are among the hardest hit by COVID-19. Prince’s Trust research says over half of young women say their anxiety has increased because of the crisis and say finding a job feels impossible – this is why it’s more important than ever to support young women.
According to The Times, 80 per cent of those who have lost their jobs since the crisis began are women and two-thirds are aged 18-34. Women are a third more likely than men to work in a sector that is now shut down.
How you can help
One of the patrons of Women Supporting Women is Holly Tucker (pictured below), the founder of Not On The High Street. Holly’s one of the most inspiring women I’m fortunate enough to know and I’m delighted to be giving my support.
She has set up a JustGiving page and I’m going to be adding to that page with my donation.
There’s absolutely no pressure but I’d love Slimpodders to donate to this wonderful cause as well. Even a £5 donation will help give hope to a young woman somewhere.
Holly’s told me she’ll try to pop in to our Brilliant Brunch to say hello so fingers crossed!
Here’s her fund-raising page:
How you can join me
So I’d love you to join me on Wednesday (October 14) any time between 10 and 11. It’s really easy, you’ll just need to download the free Zoom app. Hit this link www.GoldGatherings.com on Wednesday and use the password Slimpod.
Important: Don’t search for GoldGatherings – it won’t work. The only way to join me is by clicking on the link in this email.
Put the kettle on, prepare yourself a nice healthy brunch and we’ll have a lovely chat.
If you don’t want brunch, just have a drink with us. Tea, coffee, water, whatever you fancy.
And you don’t have to stay for the whole hour – just pop in for a few minutes if you’ve got a busy morning ahead.
Would just be nice to see your face and meet you. 🙂
Here’s some extra special news
One of the things I’ll be sharing at the Brilliant Brunch is details of the launch of a new online support service for Slimpodders – whether you’re in Slimpod Club or not.
If you can’t make it tomorrow, I’ll be revealing all in a blog next week.
Please let me know in a comment below if you’ll be joining my Brilliant Brunch on Wednesday.
