My Weekly Latest Issue September 14

My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneLast year was challenging, but as always, the kindness of our lovely My Weekly readers shone through. You donated to our Helping Hand Appeal in huge numbers, and your money will make a real difference to hungry children in the world’s poorest countries. Having visited some of the places where our charity partner Mary’s Meals feeds, I have seen first-hand how your money saves lives – and this week we have an update on how your donations last year will help (p38). Once again, a massive thank you for your unfailing generosity. Enjoy the issue and have a great week.

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!
