Camila is the patron saint of troubled children and our all round favourite inspiring person. Ever. She’s not just a Weekend Woman, she’s a lifetime woman of substance. Jane and I have met her on a number of occasions and she never fails to astonish us with her clarity of sight and amazing dedication when it comes to making troubled kids lives better. She is a mash-up of wondrous hope, determination, sanity, calm and intelligence encased in an always brightly hued wrapper of decorative print (these days mostly designed and sewn by Magbule Mulla).
As we get closer to the Christmas giving season and thoughts turn to present lists, can you take a moment to remember Kids Company, the charity tirelessly headed by Camila that does such fantastic work, but is always short on funding. If you think times are hard amongst ordinary people, imagine what it’s like at a cash strapped charity looking after the type of kids everyone else runs a mile from.
Add them to your Christmas list here. And if you find yourself with time on your hands, maybe you’ve got a skill Camila could use, check out how to become one of Camila’s Angels here
