Location: Painswick, Glos
Bio: I am 47 years old, I live in Painswick, Glos and I am a receptionist at a sports injuries clinic. I have two wonderful grown-up children and am now mum to a lively young Springer spaniel X Rottweiler called Archie.
My Give as you Live experience:
I know it’s a cliché but, I really don’t know where the years have gone, I can remember listening to people of a certain age saying “You wait till you’re my age” and thinking they were bonkers!
Well I now know what they mean now you hit 40 and it doesn’t seem too bad, then before you know it you can’t shed those few extra pounds, you would rather stay in and have an early night than go out clubbing (isn’t 1.30am the middle of the night?) and your body just doesn’t work the way it used to.
In my case I have very squeaky, creaky knees. Not to worry the is a solution “glucosamine” its naturally occurring in the body to lubricate joints but it decreases with age, so luckily you can buy it as a supplement.
I always make sure I have a supply and as I was running low I used the give as you live app to see if I could raise some more money for my cause which is Cancer Research UK.
It was easy and the company I like to use ‘Healthspan‘ is signed up so I already know the products are great and the service is excellent.
I restocked my supply of glucosamine, evening primrose and omega oils and raised nearly another fiver for Cancer Research UK it is great knowing I now have everything I need to keep me in full working order… if only!
