Bio: Proud auntie to my 3 gorgeous nephews, with another one on the way! I love spending time with my family and friends, cooking, photography and travelling with my boyfriend Paul.
One of my colleagues is soon to be moving onto pastures new, so along with the rest of the team I got my thinking cap on to come up with an idea for a great gift. Eventually we thought of putting together a collection of photo’s and quotes into a personalised diary. We thought the diary would be useful for her new role but we’ve used photos taken at both work fundraising and social events to remind her of her time at Epilepsy Scotland.
There were a number of sites that we could have used to make the diary but as photo box appeared in my Give as you Live search box I knew immediately that it would be the best site to use. The colleague who is leaving is a fundraiser so would hate to miss such an easy way to raise funds!
The photo diary went down a storm, she loved it! Not only did we find a great gift, we raised important funds for Epilepsy Scotland. Using Give as you Live was so easy to use, and there wasn’t any additional cost for the donation, the funds raised were courtesy of photo box.

After watching Chris Lilley’s new series Angry Boys on BBC3 I remembered how hilarious his last series, Summer Heights High, was and wanted to re-watch the whole first series.
Summer Heights High is an outrageous comedy show, or mockumentary, set in an Australian High School with most of the off-the-wall characters played by Chris Lilley. My favourite character is the megalomaniac teacher Mr G who casts himself in all of the parts for the school play, reminds me of a particular teacher at my school!
My boyfriend’s never seen it so I thought it would be fun to save the DVD for a night in and watch it together with a take-away…hopefully he gets the sense of humour!
I searched online for the DVD knowing that the Give as you Live results would show me where I could buy it while raising money for my chosen cause. It’s great how it shows you all results to save you shopping around yourself, another bonus about Give as you Live.
Good to know that Give as you Live not only makes sure you’re getting the best available price but also that your charity will receive a percentage of your sale, now I don’t feel as guilty about treating myself!
