Mitzvah Day 2011

Mitzvah Day was on Sunday 20 November 2011. On Mitzvah Day, around the world, thousands of people take part in hands-on projects, without fundraising, to support charities and to build stronger communities. The mission of Mitzvah Day is to reduce hardship and poverty, to help our environment and to bring a little hands-on joy. It is a way for everyone to make their mark regardless of affiliation, wealth, age, sex or nationality. Here are some photos, by Harry Borden, of my friends and family, who planted daffodils in the garden of the Marie Curie Hospice, Hampstead. I was supervising!

Karen my carer and Harry.

My wonderful team of friends & family!

Cake for hospice, kindly donated by Shelley at Grodzinski.

It was a fantastic day! My thanks to everyone who helped me to give something back to my hospice, which is so special and important to me.
