My Weekly Latest Issue December 17, 2019

Cover of My Weekly latest issue December 17, 2019, with Kym Marsh and Christmas breakfast recipes

My favourite coffee shop is throwing open its doors on Christmas Day to feed people who would otherwise go hungry. What a gesture – sacrificing their own celebration to help others. We can’t all do something on that scale, but kindness comes in all shapes and sizes, as our feature on p60 shows. In fact, you could say it’s easy! The big day is now fast approaching, so on behalf of everyone at My Weekly I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and prosperous new year. Our next issue will be on sale on Tuesday, December 31. See you on the other side!

When Walking Is A Challenge

Dr Sarah Jarvis, our GP contributor, knows that all the advice to get active is hard to hear for those who are sick or in pain. So she offers sympathetic advice on easing discomfort – and on which conditions will actually be helped, not worsened, by pushing yourself through the pain barrier.

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team. I'm a sub-editor and particularly love working on cookery, fiction and advice pages - I feel I should know all the secrets of eternal life, health and happiness by now, but hey, we all need that regular reminder!
