This September we are launching the Anti Slavery Society at the University of Edinburgh.
It is a project that means a great deal to us, and we are excited to get it under way… raising awareness and funds for this multi billion dollar industry.
We want to fight against slavery, and change the fact that there are currently 27 million slaves in the world today.
We believe that the deliverance of this profound message will be enjoyable, fun and highly rewarding.

If you watch the news at the moment, read the paper, or over hear a conversation you will hear all about the terrible things happening in the world at the moment… We are living in a ‘broken society’ says David Cameron. Everywhere you look there is violence and corruption. There are currently a series of attacks across Iraq, riots and the aftermath of the riots affecting London, Norway’s shock and despair over the horrific shootings that killed 85 people.
All of this is truly horrific and of course needs our attention, but through all this we must not forget the bright side of life! All of this is black and grey… but there is plenty of colour left in the world…
Holi Festival in India
A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person or people, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
Today has been a delicious day of eating! Starting with a breakfast at Le pain quotidien, lunch at Ottolenghi and a home-made Thai curry by Violet and Butty McConville.
If you don’t know yet, Ottolenghi is a fantastic restaurant… According to them ‘It is a way of life, somewhere between a healthy obsession and a bad habit we can’t kick.’
I live to eat, I don’t eat to live.

These pictures speak a thousand words.
The suffering and starvation shocks me. I always think of the moment the photograph was taken… is it cruel to stand by and document, or is it right to show the poverty of this world to those of us living in abundance of everything, even if that means standing by at that exact moment, not helping… but maybe eventually helping make a change?
These photographs disturb me, but are so so important. We cannot keep this distance between ‘our world’ and ‘their world’.
We have one world. The suffering and starvation can be prevented by those with power; we are those people, we have the power to change the lives of these people in these pictures and the millions of others who are dying of starvation as I type.
If we can change the lives of these people, why don’t we?
