Wishing you a Merry Christmas

Wishing you all a merry Christmas, or Season's Greeting if you don't celebrate Christmas, and a healthy, peaceful New Year.

Presents under the tree are lovely to give and receive but the things I've enjoyed giving most this year are Kiva loans to people in the developing world to fund their businesses - it's such a joy when a loan is re-paid and I can then loan it to someone else along with a small gift to Kiva to keep their work going.

One of the best things I have received this year, is the skills of a surgeon and his colleagues courtesy of the NHS and its hard-working staff (of which I am also one) and the kindness of my family and friends.

I have also seen in my local community how people working together can achieve quite remarkable things, so with those thoughts in mind I wish you all a happy, peaceful and healthy New Year.
