Getting involved with Give A Duck was a no brainier for me. As Harry’s auntie we went through the difficult times with him, Karen and Andrew, and his brother and sister. I saw how much the Chemo Duck helped Harry and jumped at the chance to bring that hope to other children and their families.

I also really benefitted from the information in the booklet that comes with Chemo Duck, as did my two eldest children, so I know we’re providing a tool which makes a real difference to a wide circle of people, not just the child and their immediate family.

As well as being on the board I have raised money for Give A Duck through taking part in 10k runs, Tough Mudder events and helping out at many others.

I have three gorgeous, clever children, Courtney 21, Ethan 16 and Martha 6 and I currently work as a 1-2-1 teaching assistant; the well-being and the ability to gain knowledge through learning in all aspects of life is paramount for children.
