I started off several years ago by working in the shops, after having been introduced by a friend. I loved my days in the shop and in time became more involved and interested in the many aspects of charity work and volunteered my services to assist the committee in 2017.

After gaining more experience and having the support of my family and friends, I became Vice President and Care Director in 2019. I was then lucky enough to be elected for President in February 2020.

In the last couple of years I have had the great privilege of developing and managing our nursing team to provide the care and support so needed to cancer patients and their loved ones. I am now equally as committed to managing the charity as a whole and I have a very dedicated and supportive committee alongside me. Along with all our volunteers and members, we will do our best to champion the charity and its mission.

I still work in one of the shops and enjoy the regular contact with friends, colleagues and customers. It has now become a great part of my life and I can only hope that whatever I do will raise awareness and make a difference to the success of our charity.
