The research we have funded has helped save thousands of children’s lives and changed many more. Every pound raised/step walked/step run/mile you pedal will support studies that could one day help children like baby Samuel born two months early weighing less than 4lbs, Iona, who at five was diagnosed with brain cancer and Tom who has the fatal muscle-wasting condition Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Be your own Graphic Designer
Since leaving teaching and returning to graphic design, I’ve found that many start up and small companies are really struggling to afford to use a qualified graphic designer in the early phase of trading – but know that having a logo, brand identity and basic on and off line marketing knowledge is essential. However, as I chat to them it is apparent that they do have great ideas of their own, want to learn, but lack the “how to do to it” knowledge and the software to make it happen. To solve that problem, the idea for ‘Be Your Own Graphic Designer’ was born, which combines my teaching and professional graphic design experience, with tutorials, videos, blogs, free downloads and on and off line marketing advice. There is also a Members Only Facebook group, so they can ask questions directly and share work and ideas with other members before customers see them.
