I’ve been married to Richard for 13 years now and we’ve got two children.


I love supporting Richard in all the fundraising events he does, and bringing the kids along as well.When it comes to freemasonry I mostly get involved with the social or fundraising events that Richard, or the lodge have organised.


As well as fundraising for the MCF, we have joined the lodge in supporting the local hospice in Loughborough, Rainbow Children’s Hospice, which the MCF has also given funding to. I think that the support that our lodge, the province and the MCF have given to the hospice is amazing work which I’m proud to be part of.
