Carbon Neutral Business
I am delighted to be working with Oblong Trees, a U.K based company planting trees to help build a sustainable future for our planet.
Your Household PA has committed to plant 72 trees a year making it climate positive by offsetting the impact of its business emissions.
For each new client 24 trees more trees will be planted.
NHS/Royal Volunteer Service
Having clocked up over 5,500 hours on duty as a Community Responder for the Royal Volunteer Service, I am now waiting to be called up to steward at the vaccine sites.
As you can imagine I have come across some real characters, with many just glad of some outside contact. This has been, and continues to be, incredibly rewarding.
Zoe App Covid-19
The Covid Symptom Study was developed by health science company Zoe together with Professor Tim Spectre, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King's College, London back in March 2020. Their findings are reported directly to the government.
I have been reporting daily since March 2020 to assist the gathering of vital information in the fight against Covid-19.
There are over 4.5 million participants who provide information through this app.
Help slow the spread of #COVID19 and identify at risk cases sooner by self-reporting your symptoms daily, even if you feel well.

Assisting my local Co-op to deliver groceries to those who are having to self-isolate or too frightened to leave their home has been a real lifeline to some.
Supporting my local community has always been a big part of my life.
I regularly take part in clinical studies to aid research into the causes of metabolic diseases.
COVID-19 Infection Survey (CIS)
This survey is being delivered in partnership with University of Oxford, University of Manchester, Public Health England and Wellcome Trust.
This study is running over the course of a year. I had a visit every week for a month and now have visits every month for one year in total from when I joined the study.
The overall purpose of this study is to understand how many people of different ages across the UK have already had COVID-19.
This will help the government work out how to manage the pandemic better moving forwards and protect the NHS from being overwhelmed.

It is a service especially close to my heart and I fundraise in memory of my son, Ollie, whom I lost through mental health.
We have raised enough funds to sponsor a room in Ollie's name and continue to receive donations to keep the room in his name for years to come. Further contributions to this incredible charity are always most humbly received.
