Helping Asthma UK whilst doing my favourite hobby… shopping!

Bio: I am 21 years old and have just finished my degree in Business information Technology. I love fashion and work in a clothes shop part time, my main hobbies are shopping and socialising.

My Give as you Live Experience:
I have recently just moved in with my sister and her family that consists of her fiancé and two daughters Chloe and Lola. I love living with my nieces and Lola has just turned 18 months old and shares my love of clothes and shopping. She wanders round the shops holding clothes up to her and looking in the mirror saying “nice mummy, that’s nice!”

She especially loves shoes… When Lola has shoes on, Lola is happy… When Lola doesn’t have shoes on, Lola is NOT happy!

The only problem that we have with this is when Lola goes to bed she doesn’t like to take her shoes off. So I thought it might be a good idea to buy Lola some slippers. My sister also mentioned that Mothercare sell ‘Lola’ slippers with the character from Charlie and Lola on.

Having recently set up an account with Give as you Live, I thought I’d see if Mothercare was set up with them. I was pleased to find out that they were so not only could I buy my niece some special, soft ‘Lola’ shoes, but I could also donate money to my charity.

My charity I have chosen is Asthma UK, it means a lot to me having had asthma since I was a child and I think it is a brilliant that I can help out the charity whilst doing my favourite hobby… shopping!
