Catherine was asked by my sons school if she could maybe do an article regarding their fundraising for a new wheelchair for him!

Catherine in my opinion went above and beyond her duty as a journalist… she is a kind, considerate, empathetic person who spent time with Sam talking to him and therefore ensuring all articles were accurate regarding his needs and the independence this chair could give him!

She has an acute interest in Sam, and has done ‘follow up’ stories allowing us the opportunity to express gratitude at the generosity of people!

Catherine has ‘shared’ the fundraising page many times on social media….and has been instrumental in the fact the money has been raised in nine weeks.

As a family we will be eternally grateful to Catherine.
