I became friends with Katie in 1997, during our first year at the University of Manchester. Katie also lived with me for a short period whilst doing an internship at a north London newspaper.
As a secondary school teacher, I am particularly interested in raising awareness of the dangers of CO poisoning amongst students. As a mother, I would also like to concentrate on educating other parents on how they can protect their children from this silent killer.
I have experience of organising fund raising events and hope that this, together with my links in education, can help to further the exposure of Katie’s charity.
