Joining TwentyTwenty has been a very exciting next step for me in my very varied career. Originally trained as a nurse, and with many years’ experience in the charity sector I have always had a passion for improving the lives of those less fortunate than I.  With three grown children of my own, I am thrilled to support the efforts of all the fabulous staff at TwentyTwenty to be a family for so many young people, and to provide an environment for them where they feel nurtured and encouraged to stretch beyond their dreams.

My role is to raise much needed funds for the charity as it expands in size and geography, through a wide variety of community activities.  These include giving talks to community groups such as Rotary Clubs, approaching businesses for direct donations and sponsorship, organising events, and scanning around for any other opportunities to bring in cash.

I also hope to inspire others around me to develop their own interests in fundraising, and to involve as many of the communities in which we operate to get involved as I can.
