I became a Trustee of the KHMT in 2011. I first met Katie back in 1997 as ‘Freshers’ at the University of Manchester. Our rooms were on the same corridor in our halls of residence. We soon became members of the Owens Park 14th floor girls. We truly embraced University life and loved the social aspects of being a student. We had such laughs on our many nights out and Katie could always be relied upon to be part of any fun that was going on. After leaving University, Katie and I remained good friends and had many great, fun times after that. Katie was also an amazing friend when I needed her most in more difficult times in my life. I will always be grateful to her for that. I am truly honoured to be part of the KHMT and am passionate about raising the awareness of the risk of Carbon Monoxide. I am now a Secondary School Teacher and have already endeavoured to raise the profile of Katie’s charity in the school in which I teach. I am dedicated to help with the continued growth and development of the charity.
