A £20 donation to our GBCC campaign will transform the future of a vunerable child in Zambia. For less than the price of a T-shirt your gift can be the best fashion statement  you make.



Our very own ‘Leading Lady'

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Our Founder and CEO Helen Allen is one of the stars of the new M&S 'Leading Ladies' campaign.


Anyone who knows PEPAIDS' founder and CEO Helen Allen may have had to look twice when M&S went 'live' with its Autumn/Winter advertising campaign this week. Helen stars alongside a range of women who have tasted success in their field including actress Dame Helen Mirren and ballerina Darcey Bussell.

Helen was chosen because of her achievements in nursing which include being voted "nurse of the year" by the British Journal of Nursing in 2011.

1712308382"It was an amazing experience which gave me the opportunity to tell all the extraordinary women in the campaign about our work in Zambia. I'm hoping all this interest in me and what I do will mean I get to share more about the work of PEPAIDS," 

The M&S campaign will be gracing billboards around the UK. Watch this space for more updates.

Breakfast at Tiffany's...

CBC2OK, it's actually breakfast at Chisila, but Tiffany's sounded good! For almost four years now Chisila Community school has been partnered with Chorlton High School in Manchester. In that time Chorlton has done some fantastic fundraising and has equipped the pupils at Chisila with some wonderful things that has meant the quality of their education became comparable to a government school.
