Belle’s First Christmas

By Katie Piper

I hope you all had a good Christmas, surrounded by family and friends (and food and drink of course!) As you know it was Belle’s first Christmas and we all had a brilliant day watching her opening her presents! I think she loved the shiny wrapping paper as much as the presents! She was so good all day, it was such a special time for us all and as you can imagine we have lots of photos to look back on!

I’m engaged!

By Katie Piper

Last Friday my boyfriend and I decided to have a romantic dinner at home….we put on our smart clothes, lit the candles and enjoyed a home cooked meal. Then to my surprise he popped the question! Of course I said yes….I am so excited and couldn’t wait to share the news with our families! They were all so pleased for us. Now Christmas will be extra special!

My Beautiful Ball

By Katie Piper

On November 27th I hosted the third Katie Piper Foundation Fundraising Ball. It was held at the Lindley Hall in London. I am so lucky to have such a great team behind me who worked incredibly hard to ensure the evening was a success. The patron of my charity, Simon Cowell came with the other X factor judges and some of the singers. He is so supportive of the charity and we are very grateful to have him on board. We all had a fantastic evening and thanks to everyone’s generosity we raised a substantial amount of money to go towards helping those affected by burns and scars.Hello mag 01.12.14 - 1

WreathOn Saturday 1st November the Katie Piper Foundation held a craft workshop in Manchester. It was an opportunity for those affected by burns and scars to meet up and enjoy a Christmas craft session. KPF member Kirby Jane helped us to make some impressive decorations. I was very pleased with the wreath I made from scraps of material!

 

Supporter’s Lunch at the House of Lords

By Katie Piper

On 29th October The Katie Piper Foundation held their Key Supporter’s Lunch at the House of Lords in London. It was attended by Burns and Plastic Surgeons, trustees, beneficiaries and supporters, who were all given the opportunity to hear first-hand how the charity have supported and changed the lives of many people who have suffered horrific injuries as a result of being burned. It was an inspiring day and a wonderful opportunity to thank all our supporters for the work they do.

The Alan Titchmarsh Show

By Katie Piper

rexfeatures_4229398xOn October 28th I was invited onto the Alan Titchmarsh show. I was talking about my book Beautiful Ever After and shared some of the ups and downs of the dating game! We ended the show with a lively game of Battle of the Sexes where I was completely outnumbered by the guys in G4 and Joe Pasquale!!

The Wright Stuff Oct 22nd

By Katie Piper

Another early start for me last Wednesday!  I made an appearance as a panellist on the  TV show The Wright Stuff. Unfortunately Matthew Wright was ill so Hardeep Singh Kohli took his place.  I had a great time discussing recent news stories with the other panellists, Steve Furst and Zoe Lyons and we listened to some interesting comments from the viewers who phoned in.

I receive a degree from Anglia Ruskin University

By Katie Piper

Kate grad ceremonyI was honoured and privileged to receive an Honorary Degree in Health Sciences from Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford. It was great to celebrate the achievements of all the students and to watch them being rewarded for their years of studying. I wish them all success and happiness in the next stages of their lives. My charity, the Katie Piper Foundation has worked closely with the university’s post graduate medical institute to further research into the treatment and after-care of burns and scars. I invited my family along to watch the ceremony, and was delighted that my daughter Belle was allowed to watch too! She was very well behaved but completely unaware of what was going on! Never mind, we have some photos to show her when she’s older.

Pride of Britain 2014

By Katie Piper

I always love the Pride of Britain ceremony, it is a chance for ordinary people to be honoured for doing extraordinary things. Some have saved lives, some have changed the lives of others and some have spent their own lives helping others. To see these people and hear their stories is always an emotional but inspiring experience. This year I was honoured to present a Pride of Britain lifetime award to Sir Roy Calne, a medical pioneer who helped to develop the anti-rejection drug Cyclosporine used by transplant patients. I have a very good reason for feeling grateful to Sir Roy as I had to take the drug after my cornea transplant, so it is thanks to him that my doctor was able to restore some of the sight in my damaged eye.
