Whip Around for Tamara Eccleston

Tamara Ecclestone has had £50,000,000 worth of her jewellery stolen from her home. How will she cope this Christmas?  (The answer is probably by chipping into the rest of her staggering fortune, of course.)

Now obviously, I don't wish the mental strain that accompanies a burglary upon her, nor do I endorse burglary. However, this story highlights the ridiculous gap between the wealthiest and poorest in our society. Shelter, a charity who helps those struggling with homelessness, estimates that there are 320,000 homeless people in the United Kingdom right now. So instead of feeling sorry for somebody who will overcome the financial loss of £50,000,000 with ease (no matter how unfortunate the circumstances), let's focus on providing for those who so desperately need it, especially at Christmas.

This is a mental target and I appreciate we'll only raise a fraction of this, but every small donation could make the difference to a struggling individual over the holidays.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause!

Much love
