It’s without a doubt that 2020 has been the most disruptive year most of us have ever experienced. In the British Mums community, we’re regularly seeing our members do things they’ve never done before, from giving birth during a pandemic, to home schooling our kids to running businesses from the dining room table. Some of us have lost loved ones and some are stuck aboard, away from the place, that even as expats, we call home. Some of us are on the frontline, fighting to save people from this disease and some of us are donating meals, offering help and supporting the wider community, in any way we can.

British Mums has recently launched a community giveback initiative to thank pivotal members of the community for their selfless deeds, support and kindness to others. Whilst it’s great to be able to recognise our lovely members, it’s also important to remember our children are living through unprecedented times too and could also do with a little pick-me-up every now and again.
