Alternative Rock Songs to Play at a Funeral
Published 30/01/2023
I don’t know if this is something that everyone thinks about, but at my own funeral I know for certain that I don’t want everyone listening to Robbie Williams belting out ‘Angels’ for the billionth time, or some classical music piece that I had absolutely no affinity for. No, I want songs to play that would have meant something to me, or songs that remind others of me and the kind of music I enjoy. That’s why I thought I would put together this list of alternative rock songs that could be played at a funeral; to provide rock fans with some inspiration if you have been thinking about it for yourself, or maybe if you have the heartbreaking task of arranging someone else's funeral who you know would appreciate some of their own personality being stamped onto the occasion.

Holocaust Memorial Day 2023
Published 26/01/2023
I found this article hard to write. Most of my knowledge of the Holocaust comes from the graphic novel Maus by Art Spiegelman (which I highly recommend if you are at all interested), so my attempts to tell you about Holocaust Memorial Day would have been little more than a copy and paste of information you can find on these great websites: - Holocaust Memorial Day Trust - United States Holocaust Memorial Museum What I can bring you that is unique to is a few of the people who really were actually a part of the story. After doing a little research I found some tribute pages for Holocaust Survivors; people who escaped those horrors and went on to live a full life here in the UK.

It’s entirely up to you, as long as you make sure to get yourself moving.

Charity Spotlight: Brooke Hospital for Animals
Published 29/12/2022
Over the festive period, we may have found ourselves taking time to sit and reflect on those who may be less fortunate than ourselves, but I’ll bet that not a lot of us will be thinking about our furry friends. All too often animals are forgotten about or overlooked at Christmas, as we scramble to get everything ready in time for the big day. That’s why Brooke, the working Horses and Donkeys charity, shines a spotlight on donkeys over the Christmas period. After all, Donkeys are synonymous with Christmas thanks to their inclusion in the nativity.
