Twinkly sack-full of presents in Christmas charity auction…

Jack Wilshere 1

From online Bollywood dance classes to a video call from England footballer Jack Wilshere, Muscular Dystrophy UK is offering a twinkly sack-full of online Christmas presents to bid for through the MDUK website.

The MDUK online auction is a great way to find wonderful presents, from cookery and crafting classes to signed sports memorabilia, and a range of accessible adventures.

It’s really easy to take part, you’ll get your gifts in good time for Christmas, and – at no additional cost – you’ll get that money-can’t-buy reward of knowing you’re supporting people with muscle-wasting conditions too.

Special Events Manager at Muscular Dystrophy UK, Lorna Poultney said:

“Every gift you buy will help us to support people with muscle-wasting conditions through our helpline and our up-to-date information and guidance, for which we’ve had a 40 percent increase in demand this year.

Many of the people who contact us are classed as clinically extremely vulnerable and at high risk from COVID-19, which is why it is particularly important to support them at this time.

The auction will be live on Friday 4 December and closing on Thursday 10th December The link to take part is: There is an amazing range of prizes

Hello @followers Welcome to the July 2024 Issue of Look Local Magazine. I want to dedicate this months letter to three NEW local businesses that I have been made aware of. First up we have Beauty at No.11 which is a sustainable beauty studio that has opened in Watlington. Owned by Watlington resident, 23-year-old Georgina Eales, the salon offers the full range of treatments that customers would expect to find in larger salons, but with the emphasis very much on sustainable, hypo-allergenic products. Georgina, who learned her craft with respected beauty industry leaders Clinique and Charlotte Tilbury, has clear ideas about how to set her business apart from others. She is the only beauty studio within a 25-mile radius to offer Hona, a pioneer of hypo-allergenic nail products. Other innovative services include Elim, a medical grade pedicure treatment, which uses state of the art ingredients to remove hard skin from the feet. You can find our more about Beauty at No.11 on their website The next business I want to give a shout out to is a small, sustainability-led retail business called Comhla (pronounced - coh-la), which means ‘together’. Founded by Lucie Harrild, the brand aims to help customers step away from fast fashion by enjoying a variety of brands and services using their mantra: Buy Well. Mend. Extend. Lucie was a sustainability professional for the last 20 years and then in 2022 ventured into the world of Comhla, in 2023 she opened a small boutique in Long Crendon to showcase the concept she is building online into a reality for customers. For more information about the business or to shop, visit them in person at Manor Stables, Long Crendon, HP18 9FF or head to their online shop With the online world in mind, and with summer well and truly upon us now, this leads nicely onto the third new business I wanted to bring to your attention to. Cool Heat Solution specialise in cooling, heating and outdoor living essentials for your home and garden. Turn to page 12-13 for their Top Picks of the perfect products to transform your outdoor space and embrace alfresco living! Or head straight to their website,, to shop their extensive collection of top quality products from the UKs best loved brands. Until next month, enjoy reading...Love Emma xREAD ONLINE VERSION HERE: ... See MoreSee Less
