Angela was joined in the studio by Sarah Oakes (pictured here on the left) and Sarah Deason (on the right) from seAp Advoacy. We learnt why they joined the charity and what “advocacy” really means and how they support and help people safeguard their rights. Listen back to hear both Sarahs explain how seAp helps and also the news that with effect from 1st April 2016 there will be a new way to contact Advocacy services for adults in Kent. If you are looking for help on PIP or ESA you may find their c-app really useful too.
If you wish to volunteer for this charity, do get in touch as they are always looking for volunteers.
Angela was delighted to meet Gary Johnston from Jack Raven Bushcraft and Jayne Dunsbee from Inspirational Changes. Hear Angela’s interview with them about why Gary set up bushcrafting courses and is now an approved CPD provider of The Institute for Outdoor Learning. Also we hear why Jayne and Gary have partnered together to provide a new offering, Nature Based Mindfulness retreats. Gary and Jayne touch on the scientific benefits of Mindfulness practices as well as the benefits of being outdoors. We hear about the wonderful tasty recipes that Gary’s partner, Nicola Clowes, produces (that have been compared to restaurant quality) for example, Hogweed Pakoras, Dandelion Bajis and Sag Aloo made from Stinging nettles and why stinging nettles are so much better for us than Spinach!

Well we didn’t have any proposals on air – but we had a great time chatting with Gillian Smissen who is a Trustee for The Harmony Therapy Trust. She told us how her daredevil antics caught the eye of the Trust who asked her to become more involved. She also explains how the Trust operates and how listeners can get involved and raise funds to enable the charity to keep doing it’s great work. Chris Pollard and Angela are seen holding their “Happiness Kits” as explained on the show.
The lovely Liz Almond of Insightful Minds joined us in the studio clutching her new book “Are You Worth it? A Spiritual guide to managing your money mindset“. She shared her story as to why she is now a healer’s healer and how she herself has come through many of life’s struggles both financially, mentally and physically. In her book, she shares her wealth of knowledge to show the reader how they can change their life, see the richness in it and have a fulfilled and happy life without worrying what is in their bank account.
