Today I am very proud to announce that I am taking on the role of Acting Manager of my family’s charity SEED Eating Disorders Support Services.
My parents have worked tirelessly over the last 20+ years to help & support 1000's of those affected by eating disorders, but now - sadly - they must step down from the day to day running due to ill health.
As with many charities, COVID-19 has hit us hard financially, so I have decided to step into this role & continue the hard work that my parents have put into this wonderful, life changing & life saving organisation.
It's been an emotional & overwhelming time. I am determined & ready to fight to save our charity & change the way eating disorders are viewed, to get SEED the support it deserves & in turn allow #SEED to help the 1.6 million people in the UK alone who are affected by an eating disorder.
