This little girl has a very rare heart tumour
Normally I wouldn’t do this, because it’s not exactly green technology, but… and yes there is a but.
This little girl is the daughter of one of the people that is involved with the Kinder Living Show, which I am also involved with. The Kinder Living Show is very much about being kinder to each other and the planet, whether by recycling, upcycling or indeed by using green technology to solve our problems.
Anyway, the family are trying to raise the money for their little girl to be flown all the way to Boston to have heart surgery, which is an expensive endeavour. I hope this message reaches people that would like to help.

One of the Kinder Living family needs our help.
When I came up with the idea for the Kinder Living Show in 2014, Russell Davy was one of those who had enough faith in the idea to take part. He returned last year, and had booked a stand for our third show in a couple of weeks.
Russell and his wife Emily have a daughter called Verity who was only a couple of months old when we did the first show in May 2015. Verity is now 2 – and they have recently discovered she has a very rare heart tumour. So rare that the NHS has no one who has ever operated on one like it.
Fortunately there is a surgeon in Boston who has operated on children with this type of tumour, with a 100% success rate. The family need to raise £100,000 to pay for the surgery.
Lots of their family and friends are doing things to help, and we want to do what we can. Members of the Kinder Living Team are busy crafting – items will be on sale at the show on Verity’s Stand.
If you can help in any way – however small, please do. Thank you,
Jeanette Mercer, Show Organiser
