Welcome to our special bonfire night edition. As we’re all no doubt aware Bonfire night celebrates the triumph of brutal, state sponsored persecution in the face of a bloody failure of violent rebellion. With sparklers.

We have a guest with us! Lauren Hogan, Volunteering Projects Officer with Turn2us, a national charity who support people facing financial struggles.
