Which charity are you representing and how did you come to be involved with them?
I am representing The Sick Childrens Trust, I started in the role of House Manager at Scott House at the Freeman Hospital 4 weeks ago after looking for a role that is challenging but allows me to give something back.
Why does your The Sick Childrens Trust really deserve the support?
We are a charity that solely runs on charitable donations and provide a service to families so they can be close to there children, whilst undergoing treatment in the heat unit. We provide a home from home environment in our house where families stay with no charge.
What’s the most random act of kindness you’ve ever received or given?
Nothing springs to mind for a random act of kindness, but I regularly help with a local Scout group giving up my time to help with activities and camps.
How far do you think you'll get on the Bike (Some Noise)?
I am hoping to complete a least 50 mile depending upon the length of time I have in the seat.
And which Heart Presenter do you love the most and why?
I like Steven Mulhern and Emma Willis.
