I’m taking the Live Below The Line challenge again this year; from 28th April to 2nd May I’ll living on £1 a day for 5 days, to raise money for Oxfam. No donated food, no sneaky spices from my store cupboard, battening down the hatches with just five £1 coins to spend for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I did it last year and raised a staggering £3,500 – and you can read about it here on my blog.
I’ll be blogging about it this year too; the shop, the meals, the challenges, the low points and the triumphs. I remember last year a particularly beige sausage (6 for 80p) and stuffing (15p a packet) sandwich (22 slice loaf for 50p…)
To sponsor me this year, please go to – I want to help tackle extreme poverty in the UK and across the world, will you help me?
