You can't add days to your life, but you can add life to your days!

Mandy Taylor mbe

21st September 1968 - 2nd December 2021

Mandy Taylor enjoyed a full, wonderful, and exciting life full of family and friends, pink sequins, feathers, sparkle and plenty of lipstick. Everywhere Mandy went, she made connections with everyone she met. Many of which were very special to Mandy. She was a true believer in random acts of kindness, for no other reason than to simply help others. Mandy, also known as ‘Charity Angel’ has collectively raised around £2 million for various charities, given hours of time, inspired others to give and touched so many people’s hearts. She never stopped giving and looking for ways to support others.

However, life also threw Mandy plenty of challenges and hurdles to overcome. On the third time of being diagnosed with cancer, Mandy was given a terminal diagnosis and and she believed that while she could no longer add days to her life, she could add life to her days.

Before Mandy’s passing in December 2021, she launched her #BeMoreMandy social media campaign. A campaign that represents everything that Mandy was and gave her joy. This campaign was designed to ‘pass the baton’ and encourage others to ‘just do it’. Reach out to someone in need, help a charity, donate, pay it forward or just spread some joy.

Mandy wanted us to stop saying ‘I will get around to it’ and ‘just do it’. So, can you #BeMoreMandy?
