Earlier this year I got chatting to my friend Kate about Naked Mums. Being naked is more than just taking your clothes off. Its about being true to yourself, being laid bare.
I have done that in so many ways, particularly in the last 12 months. As part of my recovery from my childhood I felt it was time to face my demons so I took part in a photo shoot with the very lovely Yuri from Urbanvox.
One of the things I wanted to was make these pictures mean even more. And I have chosen to raise money for Beechwood Cancer Care Centre. Following mum's breast cancer journey I felt very strongly that I wanted to support a cancer charity, but one that works locally. For mum having local services proved to be vital for her, she made friends, got support and received a great deal of healing.

When I have reached my first goal of £500 I will post a picture from the shoot, and another for every subsequent £500 raised up to £1500.
Thank you to all who supported me and taken care of me in my own recovery, and please give generously to this good cause.
