From an early age I've taken an active role in raising money for charities and in giving my time in support. Including taking handicapped Chilrdren on holiday (via the Handicapped Childrens Pilgrimage trust). The trips give a break to the carers and families of the children as well as giving the children a memorable and enjoyable week in the south of France. I have run the London Marathon twice fundraising for Health Unlimited and British Lung Foundation and raised over £5,000 for these very worthy causes. School & Community: I have been active most recently in fundraising for my children's Primary school in Tylers Green.
