My story

[p]Thanks very much for visiting my page. My challenge has been to live without a fridge or freezer for six months. The big switch-off took place on 1 January, 2012 and I switched on again at midnight on 30 June.[/p] [p]It is still possible to donate to Compassion in World Farming through this web page. Donations will be quickly processed and passed to CIWF, including gift-aid where appropriate. I will keep the fund running until the end of the year as a few more donations are, I know, in the pipeline. [span=color: #ff0000;]Not counting gift aid, but including offline donations, we have now raised over three thousand pounds (as at 6 November 2012)[lt]br /[gt][/span][/p] [p]If you would like to read about my fridge-free experiment, please visit my blog at [b]http://janemackay.wordpress.com[/b].
