So when I get a bit of 'free' time what do I do? Well here's a couple of things:
Chair of the Lister Neonatal Unit Families Group
I have a great interest in fundraising and promoting causes close to my heart and am currently the Chairman of the Lister Hospital, Stevenage, Neonatal Parents Group. The group is dedicated to supporting the families of children who have had babies born too early or sick, who have spent time being cared for by the neonatal unit. We also organise regular fundraising activities to help provide much needed additional funds for the unit.
For more details on the group, visit www.listerneonatalunitfamiliesgroup.org.
Director of the Hitchin Festival
I am currently one of the Directors of the Hitchin Festival. This yearly arts festival in the market town of Hitchin, Hertfordshire aims to showcase the local thriving entertainment scene and bring people to the town from the surrounding areas.
