    Peter is the new vice-chairman at Little Miracles.

    Here is what Peter has to say about supporting Little Miracles:

    Hello, I'm Peter Jackson, a retired company director, and I'm thrilled to be a trustee at Little Miracles.

    I first crossed paths with Michelle when she was just starting this amazing organisation. The work she was doing to support children and families facing significant health challenges impressed me deeply. I couldn't just stand by; I wanted to get involved.

    Over the years, I stayed engaged with Little Miracles, offering support whenever I could. So, when the opportunity to become a trustee came up, I gladly accepted. I'm here to do my part and help the cause.

    My background in business management and leadership equips me with the skills to contribute to our mission's growth. As a trustee, I actively participate in decision-making and governance to ensure we continue providing top-notch care and support to the families who rely on us.

    I'm honoured to be part of the Little Miracles family, working alongside other passionate supporters to create a brighter future. Together, we'll make a lasting impact on the lives of the children and families we serve. Thank you for joining me on this journey.

  • Emerson Paton

    Published 19/10/22, by Admin

    Emerson has been a trustee with Little Miracles for for more than 7 years.

    Here is what Emerson has to say about supporting Little Miracles:

    "I met Michelle at one of my business planning events.

    I offered to give her a free session afterwards as a charity. When I saw the great work that she was doing with the team at Little Miracles how could I not want to get involved. She asked me if I’d like to be a trustee and I jumped at the chance. I would like to bring my business advice skills to the charity to make sure that we are working the best we can and hoping to raise funding for the children in the best ways that we can.

    I’m passionate about supporting the children and have not only been a trustee but dressed up as Santa and delivered presents to hundreds of children in the lockdown, rode a bike for charity around the Isle of Wight one of the hottest days of the year in 2022. During the lockdown I came up with the home haircut challenge of which we managed to raised another £3500.

    The work Little Miracles stuff is so important for the families of the children as well as the children themselves and I need to feel that in this world we’re not only there to support ourselves but also our community around us and that’s why I’m also a trustee for Little Miracles."
