We also carry a wonderful tale of a vendor who, after losing his dog last year just before Christmas, has now made his way to Lapland to train and look after huskies. Yes, really!

In the UK 700,000 kids care for adults. We look at a worthwhile project that gives them a break – and a platform to express themselves. An important piece.
