Helen McCookerybook and Charlie Tipper - Femme Fatale
December 2016: All proceeds of the sale of this sly and stylish take on the Velvet Underground and Nico classic will go to Refugee Action.
Even more so than Brexit, the refugee crisis has been the big story of the year, influencing world events, elections, commentary and media coverage not just in the UK but in France, Germany, Netherlands, the US and beyond in ways that we simply could not have predicted back in 2015.
Beyond the hysterical headlines and attention seeking politics are real human lives, real human stories. And I think that that has largely been forgotten.
Goodbye 2016, hello 2017. Let's hope it's a better year for all of us.
