Gentleman Crafter goes on the road to raise funds for Mind Charity
John Bloodworth, also known as ‘Gentleman Crafter’, will be setting off on Monday 25th April on a one-man tour of all 92 historic UK counties, crafting with communities along the way in a bid to raise £20,000 in aid of Mind, a UK-based registered mental health charity.
Sponsored by Create and Craft TV, John will live and travel in a motorhome, visiting craft groups, organising workshops and sharing his crafting knowledge, all while promoting Mind.
John (42) has suffered periods of severe depression and anxiety disorder in his life and has found Mind to be a valuable resource in understanding his condition and finding ways to move forward in life.
He said: “A year ago I hit rock-bottom and suffered an extended period where my mental health difficulties began emerging as physical symptoms such as shaking, sweating and being short of breath.”
“Fortunately, I discovered the Mind website and was able to identify why this might be happening and different ways in which I could tackle these issues. I went to my doctor and, after a discussion about the options available, we agreed on a course of action. I was initially prescribed medication which would have the benefit of reducing my overall distress and thereby provide the space in which to seek further support from local talking therapy services. My recovery was then monitored by my GP who recommended adjustments as time progressed.”
Over a period of time, John reached a point where he could look back and understand what had happened to him… and now he wants to reach out and help others.
Grundig Food Mixer Reviews
Does anyone who purchased the Grundig food mixer have any opinions on it, I am considering buying it but can't make up my mind whether to go for a kenwood.
If they sell it on Amazon, there's usually some great reviews there, and unlike some places I ould mention, they allow god, bad and indifferent reviews :) I find Amazon very reliable with their reviews.
Hi, I ordered a Grundig mixer from ebuyer following seeing it on ideal world, I have used it to make cakes meringue etc it is a heavy machine that doesn't jump about too much , it is noisy but most mixers are, I paid £129 for mine and what swung it for me is that you get 2 bowls included and if you want to add attachments you can use the kitchen aid ones as they are made in the same factory.
I'm very pleased with mine for the price I would recommend it and it looks really stylish I would have
Loved a red one but the black it really nice looking ( not so much after an 11 year old has gone mad with a bag of icing sugar tho! )
Shop around as lots of sellers had no stock a few weeks ago
There is a recent thread on here about an issue someone had when buying a Grundig mixer from IW in that it was supplied with a 2 pin plug that needed an adaptor, rather than a traditional 3 pin plug. I don't know if that is the norm with the Grundig mixers.
Thanks, I have had a look at the reviews on Amazon and it seems to be okay so I have ordered one. The Grundig on IW was £299.99 when I looked last night
There is one on e-bay daily deals for £129
Mine came from ebuyer and had a uk plug on it, mine was£129 with free delivery used it again today -love it now!
