Compensation for delayed DisABLED Train Passengers

A 2019 Government report  found disABLED people travel less frequently &  experience problems when travelling by train.


"Delay Repay", is the national rail compensation scheme. The criteria is based on delayed travel times. I'm petitioning for delays & disruption to disABLED passengers  to be added to their criteria.

THE JUSTACARD CAMPAIGN NOVEMBER 2019

The Just a Card Campaign

The origins of the Just a Card Campaign

#Ad The campaign came about when Artist & Designer Sarah Hamilton saw the quote "If everyone who'd complimented our beautiful gallery had bought 'just a card' we'd still be open" by store keepers who'd recently closed their gallery.

What's it about?

The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to support, value and buy from artists, designers, independent shops and small businesses by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even 'just a card' are so vital to their prosperity and survival.

How does this impact Busy Life?

Busy Life is a small, new business. We have a great USP with our Diversity Designs and SmileCloud ranges. However, we still need your support to survive! So, please, shop at Busy Life now!

"Run, girl, Run!" Additions

In September, I  added another set of images to the Busy Life’s "Run, girl, run!" collection; part of the “Diversity Designs™ range.  Inspired by my daughter, these are images for runners who wear their hair in plaits. A range of clothing and accessories with an image like you! The range celebrates the athlete in you, whatever your size, shape, age, race, or ability.  


The "Run, girl, run!" collection, together with the "Run, boy, run! collection are available, on Zazzle in the Busy Life "Diversity Designs™" store.
