There are lots of good causes, but occasionally one comes along that strikes a chord with you. Thats what Charlie’s charity did with me. My son was born 3 months premature, and against all the odds survived and flourished.
When i first heard Charlie’s story and heard of the efforts the family were making to raise funds to help prevent other families going through the same thing, it made me realise just how lucky my family had been. I just felt it was right to do something, however small, to help them in some way.
From helping with small events comes a bond created from meeting others with the same goal, and being a trustee is just another small contribution towards that goal. It just seemed the right thing to do, just as offering to help in the beginning was the right thing to do
