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.

    Default Gosbee and Kent Jewellery BS from Russell

    Apparently according to James Russell, they are top jewellery designers who Sit up were very lucky to deal with exclusively as there was a lot of competition for their products. Tara Gosbee (who is now the 5th generation of her family working in jewellery design- so her family have been in this industry for over 100 years) and Rachel Kent who is also a top jewellery designer in her own right.

    The only problem with this story is that same as the Christin Lars nothing comes up on google searches for Tara Gosbee and Rachel Kent jewellery designers. They have no website or registered company that I could find. There is only one person named Tara Gosbee in this country who lives in Kent.

    Are they made up names?

    It looks like another BS story from Russell. Can anyone shed light on this?

    My reason for exposing Bid TV BS is it may help them to start being more truthful in the future or maybe a Sit up employee can tell us that Gosbee and Kent are real people in jewellery design. Come on Peter Sherlock - do tell!

    I still can't believe there are folk out there who fall for all the lies?

    Christin Lars - all made up. Russell even calls him 'Christian'!
    Kind of reminds me of that bloke who came upto me whilst on holiday and offered me a gold 'Rolex' whilst I was busy eating my prawn cocktail.
