Welcome to the round up of posts that you might have missed here on Smorgasbord this week.
How quickly the weeks are flying by and hard to believe the Spring Equinox is just around the corner. It should be a time of joy and new beginnings but unfortunately for millions around the world either victims of conflict or opportunistic pathogens, the day will pass without the will to celebrate.
People around the world are however, uniting in offering homes, much needed aid and support and in the news today…Daily Mail
A group of British firefighters are on their way to support firefighters in Ukraine, stocked with more than 5,000 items of fire and rescue kit. In social media footage, 22 vehicles were captured beginning their journey from London as another 22 fire engines also left Ashford, Kent, as part of a humanitarian aid campaign. The convoy of trucks will make its way into Poland, where fire engines will be able to cross the border and support firefighters in Ukraine.
Millions have been raised by not just celebrities who are donating personally or leading donation drives but ordinary people determined to do their bit. There are a number of funds set up for donations but please do check them out thoroughly before donating to confirm their status.
My thanks as always to William Price King, Debby Gies and Carol Taylor for their amazing contributions and this week William joined me on the Breakfast Show for hits from 1990 and then shared the early years of the amazing Dionne Warwick.
