I have decided to give some of my time to a very charitable cause.

Red Balloon Learner Centres, rescue severely bullied children who have removed themselves from mainstream school, because they can no longer cope.

Red Balloon Centres provide a safe leaning environment with specialist teachers, so that these children can study until they are ready to return to main stream school, take exams, or get a job.

The founder of Red Balloon Learner Centres set up the first school in her home in Cambridge fifteen years ago. There are six centres open at present in the UK.

Red Balloon is the only organisation in the UK to actually provide a academic tuition for the GCSE and A Level syllabus and exams, as well as counselling.

My time is spent in a most interesting way, and for a very useful cause.

I am involved in raising awareness of this Charity, but also involved with fundraising for this brilliant cause.

For more details and to donate -


  1. Marilyn - I've never heard of this charity but it sounds a really worthwhile cause. I hope it goes well.

  2. Hi Sally, Red Balloon is a very worthwhile charity. I haven't been so excited about something in a long while...apart from writing my series of books! So yes, I hope it goes well. It will!
