As I begin to plan for the year ahead, I think it is important to take some time to reflect on 2022 and remember some of the highlights.
With your help, we managed to raise £721.23 for multiple causes this year.
In February I hosted my annual fundraiser for Mind in memory of my Dad, who I lost to suicide less than 2 years ago. I find raising money in his name to be comforting during hard times and your generosity never fails to blow me away.
I have also been donating £1 from each order placed on my website to charity. Together, we have raised £80 for The Marine Conservation Society UK and £42 for Hope 4.
My goal for 2023 is to hit £1,000 for charity, will you help me get there?
Throughout 2022 I attended some really cool events and markets. Here are some of my favourites:
-SheWakes mini festival.
-UK National Wakeboarding championships.
-Charity yoga & wellness fair.
-South Coast Makers Christmas market.
-The Watersports Academy Christmas market.
I absolutely love meeting and chatting to you all in person and hope to do a lot more of it this year.
I also hosted another beach clean and barbeque in celebration of Water Baby's second birthday which was a massive success! We had a good turnout and collected lots of rubbish from Sandbanks, helping keep out beaches clean.
Water Baby in store
2022 is also the year Water Baby got stocked in store for the first time. I am so proud of this accomplishment and grateful to Almond & Co in Westbourne and Pen Gallery in Poole for believing in my jewellery.
Overall I am so proud of everything we have accomplished in the past year and I say 'we' because I could not have done it without you! Water Baby has evolved so much but this is just the beginning.
I look forward to another year of creating and growing this little community.
