Foggy Adventures

“As for Phileas Fogg, it seemed just as if the typhoon were a part of his programme”      Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days When GSK launched the PULSE programme 10 years ago I knew it was for me. The opportunity to make a difference, in the heart of a community serving some of the […]

The Life of Qi

The Drawing Board

“Mummy, why can’t I draw like you?” Practise is what I always say; get yourself the best quality tools you can afford, and practise, practise and then practise some more.

Half as much again

This week I hit my PULSE halfway mark – 18th September. I started at Save the Children on 18th June and I will finish on 18th December (although I don’t think I’ll bring all of me back from Save the Children).   The reality hit me right between the eyes as it coincided with a ‘ping’ […]

The girl on the train …

“Save the Children is often told that its aims are impossible – that there has always been child suffering and there always will be. We know. It’s impossible only if we make it so. It’s impossible only if we refuse to attempt it.” Eglantyne Jebb, Founder, Save the Children From a girl on the train […]

To bare or not to bear

To bare – uncover and expose it to view ~~~  To bear – support; carry the weight of Change yourself, change communities, change GSK – that is the 3-fold mission of PULSE. I can’t quite believe my PULSE adventure begins for real in just a few days time! As the waiting game comes to an […]

Forces of Nature

Yesterday I mowed the lawn – it took me almost 5h (I do have a rather large garden, and there was an awful lot of strimming to be done as well). I only did it last week … how does the green stuff grow sooo quickly I wondered? I asked my 13-year old daughter, and she […]
