It started at 5am on Saturday morning. I took the train to Melton Mowbray and set up a stall at the East Midlands Food Festival. I met our wonderful supporter Greg Hewitt, my ever helpful sister Shehnaz joined us later, and together we spread the word about sweet potatoes… apparently a local favourite.
If you missed it, our partners Hello Fresh helped us promote the campaign on Tuesday, meaning that hundreds of people across the UK will get a special delivery on World Food Day (16th October) featuring a delicious sweet potato recipe.
Another early start on Wednesday, but luckily this time I just had to make it to the opposite end of the Victoria Line to help run our Lifesaver event at the station, this time asking people to help protect the EU aid budget. (And they did, in their hundreds).
Tonight, I’ll be getting the sweet potatoes out again at Street Feast in Dalston. Please come down and say hi!
And all this time, two of our fabulous ONE Mums have been in Ethiopia, learning, living, writing and sharing, supported by many more ONE Mums in the UK.
Let’s face it, I may have had a busy week, but their stories are the ones you’ll want to hear.
