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.
That's another thing most of them say, 'we've sold this for far more before'
They then go on to say' it's a quiet night' usually or 'Eastenders/X Factor must be on'
James Russell said the other night, 'here's a tip.......record X Factor and watch us, you'll pick up loads of bargains'
Good point-I've just done a search and could not find a Christin Lars watch being offered for more than £100 anywhere,and they are all over the net.
It is illegal for a seller to claim that an item was previously sold for a specified higher price unless they can show that it is true.
Russell may claim that people purchased at the 'start price' shown on the screen for over £100 but unless they actually paid £100 plus at the end of the sale then it is a false claim and he should not be allowed to make it.
Did anyone notice that when he talked about his friends who took their 2 year old child to Greenland last christmas and they came back with that christmas tree onament thing that he was selling. A bit later, it wasn't Greenland that they went to, but Lapland.
The man can't even remember the lie he told a couple of minutes before!
The man is a complete plank!
The producer probably told him in his earpiece that no one goes to Greenland for Christmas.
lmao, he's so predictable. For BS he is off the scale for greatness!
If he told us what day it was I'd find it hard to believe him
I've got it! These fictitious companies are all named after the people that work there. Tommy and Kate are the cleaners, Fletcher and Lowe the surnames of a couple of the camera crew, Rosa Benini is Caroline Lyndsay's maid, Christin Lars.....the names of Nicola George's cat and Peter Simon's dog....as for Dr Cringle.....One of them said...well it's got to sound medical...so "Dr", what about "Crippen?" pipes up Sally...He's a murderer ya daft mare, said Pete..let's call him Cringle , we'll get away with that....bet they had a laugh with that one!!!!
