Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am fund-raising for two womens' charities and would love to be able to keep the money equal so please take a look at the team page and lets show our love for both the Motherwell Cheshire CIO and Smart Works, Leeds charity.

Join me on Monday 8th February over on Instagram where I will be hosting a live Midlife Inspirathon of interviews. 12 hours of sharing a diverse collection of women, all with inspiring stories to tell.

I have hosted the Out of the Bubble podcast for 2 years now and have interviewed over 60 amazing women over 40 all with incredible stories to share and help motivate other women. For the launch of my new 2021 series I wanted to give something back and as #womensupportingwomen is very much part of my Out of the Bubble podcast ethos I couldn't think of a better way to do it. www.outofthebubblepodcast.com

We have seen a huge increase in women finding themselves out of work during this pandemic and Smart Works is a national charity which supports women from all backgrounds get back in to employment. Providing coaching to give them confidence and self belief to succeed in the workplace , as well providing high quality interview appropriate clothing which can be a real financial barrier for some women. I am raising money for the Smart Work Leeds branch.

After interviewing the CEO Kate Blakemore on the podcast I was blown away by her and the whole teams dedication to helping women of all ages and backgrounds through a wide range of services. Offering a safe place , free from judgement to often vulnerable women and supporting them to re-find their confidence, improve life skills and access the services they need.
