I’m so proud to be ambassador and patron for the Red Sky Foundation.  I became involved in 2016 when I was deeply moved by the personal story of Emma and Sergio Petrucci and was blown away by their ongoing dedication to raise funds to provide new equipment and improve the services within the heart unit at the Freeman Hospital for babies and children.  I have witnessed the charity go from strength to strength and knowing what we are doing is making such a huge difference to families facing incredibly difficult times is absolutely priceless.  The foundation does such incredible work for babies and children with cardio problems right here in the North East and now we’re supplying the region with lifesaving defibrillators which is such an important part of what the charity is delivering.  I’m very passionate about helping to make our local communities, schools, businesses and city centres much safer.
