Milton Keynes Hospital Charity

Retiring from Willen Hospice in December 2012 after 20yrs of fundraising, the last 6yrs of which I managed a successful Events and Promotions team, I choose to re-enter the third sector as a volunteer for the Milton Keynes Hospital Charity with the emphasis on raising awareness of their work and fundraising appeals within the local community. My current focus is supporting their Cancer Unit Appeal as we want to do the best we can now for patients and in years to come our children and their children can have access to excellent cancer treatment.
