As many of you saw on Social Media, I made the decision to cancel my Moomin themed club recently due to a person/s who have for several years stalked and harassed me through my business.
Whilst I may make a joke and laugh and push forward with my business, not everyone can do that and nobody should have to. Having your personal details, your full home address, and work phone number shared and knowing someone has them who you haven't shared it with and don't know their identity, is unsettling at best. This person has spent several years sending message pretending to me, and trying to get both me and my business in trouble. This last time resulted in the decision to cancel my club, and a loss over over £4000.
I wanted to take one of the markers I'd designed and donated the full price to a charity to support those being stalked or harassed and decided to split the proceeds between the Suzy Lampard Trust and also Paladin. Both of these charities provide support and guidance, and actively campaign issues around stalking and harassment.
