Hot Accessories That Also Work for Halloween

Everyone knows that accessories can transform an outfit, so why not apply the same logic when it comes to Halloween? It plays well for those who aren't into going all out but want to join in a bit on the dressing up front, but it doesn't even mean you can't go in character either. Some celebrities' accessories are their calling card, you just have to put a bit of thought into your outfit.

The loss of a parent, sister or brother is a devastating event in any child's life. The impact of bereavement can have consequences that last a lifetime, which is why it is vital that the young people affected get the right support at the right time.

You Don't Need to Be Bill Gates to Be a Philanthropist - The Young Professionals Are Getting in on the Game

Tim Farron

This is not a party political issue. I'm not saying that we shouldn't sort out those deep structural issues holding us all back. In my view, this is absolutely not a substitute for Government aid and I am incredibly proud that the Lib Dems are making it law for Government to invest 0.7% of GDP in overseas Aid. But 21st Century philanthropy is no longer for the astronomically rich.

Every year I have to find something new to take part in, that challenges and pushes me outside of my comfort zone and has the effect of terrifying me witless. This year was no different. Thanks to persuasive talents of one Shirley Pinder from BT, I agreed to abseil down the GPO Tower along with Martin Bayfield, Helen Skelton and a few others and a platoon of Royal Marines headed up by the Big Boss, Ed Davis. I know... I'm not sure how that happened either. (Note to self; block all future calls from Abseiling Shirley, as she is affectionately known in our house)...

Making Little Miracles Happen for Children In Need

Nick Knowles | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment

Normally the DIY SOS team has nine days to transform an existing two or three bedroom house and add on something like an extension in that time but this would be on a totally different scale. We realised that completely recreating a brand new centre for Little Miracles would be our biggest ever challenge. The 'BBC Children in Need Big Build' quickly became known as the 'Million Pound Build' in the office. The main contractor quoted us a budget of £1 million and informed us that a job of this size and detail would take nine months to complete...
