My wife is the mother of three who is a maths teacher in our local secondary school. She has volunteered for Save the Children since the age of 14 and gives up much of her spare time organising events to raise money for children both here and abroad. She is currently the chairperson of the local SCF branch. Just some of the things that she does are, she writes a panto each year which is put on by the Acting Community Thingymbogs, a drama group she helped form, with all the profits going to Save the Children Fund. She has run the London Marathon three times, on each occasion being sponsored for SCF. She was recently selected to visit India and some of the projects that SCF run out there, and was incredible moved by what she saw and experienced there, and by how much people can be helped by giving so little. She is currently organising a quiz, open gardens, a spring production for the drama group, as well as a number of book sales all to raise money for the charity. Since they were formed the branch have donated over a million pounds to the central fund. All in all she is an incredible woman who has always worked towards helping some of the most vulnerable people within society. She has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, has had an operation and is soon to start a course of treatment. The outlook is very positive. She is a role model towards our children and towards the children. She teaches that it isn`t what you get out of things its what you put in that matters.
