Ginny and I have been writing some songs before and during lockdown and had a chance to record a couple. This one is about Norfolk… I’m missing the salty sea and long walks on the windy beaches…. still tweaking but here’s a little preview!
Life Growing Up won best film in the Long Form under £5m category at the Charity Film Awards from a shortlist of 18 films. It was a surreal affair as the whole ceremony was broadcast live on Youtube during lockdown and we were watching at home, but big celebrations here when we won! Credit to all the amazing young people who shared their stories with us. Their courage has changed the way people think and feel about young people born with HIV. We couldn’t have made the film without their stories.
We are delighted to announce that we have just heard that we are finalists in the charity film awards for our film “Life Growing Up” – the true stories of young people in the Uk growing up with HIV. Please vote for us here… there is still time! And tune in to watch the Live digital broadcast of the virtual awards ceremony on Tuesday 21st April at 7pm by going the Charity Film Awards website.

I am very pleased to be working with The OceanTree again this year. Meeting Menopause is a weekend retreat for women that I will be co-facilitating from 1-3rd May 2020 with my long time friend and brilliant coach, yoga teacher and wise woman Fiona Bibby. We will be combining our skills and using the story “Seal Skin Soul Skin” from Clarrissa Pinkola Este’s seminal “Women that Run With The Wolves” as a framework, to offer what we hope will be a really empowering, thoughtful and insightful weekend retreat.
We are so excited to announce that Life Growing Up, our film about the stories of young people growing up with HIV, has been shortlisted for the Charity Film Awards. The second stage of voting starts now, so please add your vote here.
Great to watch Life Growing Up Screened at the Global Health Film Festival with co-writer Danny Scheinmann and producer Tamsin Herbert, and was honoured to be part of a panel discussion following the screening.
