Introducing Our Patron…….
We are delighted to welcome Kerry Godliman as our patron. Kerry told us, on accepting the role:
“I’m very happy to be asked to be patron for this wonderful charity. The value and comfort the Chemogiftbags provide for ladies and gents receiving chemotherapy is such a simple and kind gesture. They offer a reminder that friendship and comfort are what’s needed to support people through their treatment and time of need.”
I am a person that is always striving for the best at whatever I can do and have lots of determination. Helping others is what I do best, and I will continue to do so wherever possible. Animals will always have a special place in my heart, especially dogs, and over the years I have rescued 5 English Bull Terriers. They are renowned for their stubbornness and I love that in them.
Hoping to continue my travels with my Partner, when we can, and visit new places on our adventures. Love meeting people from all walks of like, different nationalities and cultures, and if that means there is a chance of a social gathering then that’s a plus for me.
At 68 I am still a big bike fanatic and used to enter ‘side car motto cross’ as a side car passenger. My enthusiasm for this sport is definitely still there, but sadly the old bones won’t allow me to participate anymore so now I watch from the side lines. I am retired now but will always keep myself busy.
Being a Trustee has given me many opportunities to meet people from varied backgrounds and careers and do things I would never have done, had this position not come along. I have met some interesting people over the years and even delivered Chemogiftbags myself, made up the bags, work in the warehouse and even participated in a video shoot.
I am looking forward to being even more involved in the months ahead, supporting this wonderful charity in whatever way I can.
I joined Chemogiftbags in late 2019 as a Volunteer for the warehouse operation. I am now a Trustee and I love my role – this charity has a massive place in my heart, and it is definitely good for the soul. Giving back to help others is a joy to do and very worthwhile.
I am a ‘party girl’ and still think I am in my 20’s but my body definitely tells me otherwise, but I won’t stop dancing or trying to sing, very badly. Love to be social and meet up with my friends as much as I can. Hosting gatherings for them is my most enjoyable thing and I love to do it, and do it well. My favourite past time is walking my two dogs with my husband. In my spare time I am a nail technician and dog walker/sitter for my friends. Walking is my best therapy.
