Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

Ed Reyes and I are raising funds for Reverse Rett and Skylarks who are independent charities which support our beautiful daughters. All donations received will be split equally between the 2 charities.

Amy is Ed's daughter. She is 13 and she has Rett syndrome, which makes speech impossible, and deliberate movements and eating difficult or impossible.

My daughter Jessica, 3, has autism, and although she is very physical, she is unable to communicate.

We have a very special video campaign which will launch Monday 20th December and run for 4 days which includes a humorous sketch from actress and comedian Sally Phillips (Smack the Pony, Bridget Jones's Diary, Veep and much more) alongside actress Ronni Ancona. Sally also describes how Skylarks has supported her and her son.

Victoria Macdonald, health and social affairs editor for Channel 4 News, takes a few minutes out from her busy schedule, where she was broadcasting at a regional hospital, to record a slot for us on why these charities are so important and asks for your kindness in supporting them.

There are a raft of faces from across the legal sector including Daniel Winterfeldt MBE QC (Hon), Sharon Blackman OBE, Sean Jones QC Matt Byrne, Gerard McDermott, wishing you a happy festive break and asking you to support these two fabulous charities.

This fundraising campaign starts on Monday 20th December, and will run for 4 days. Melissa Davis, CEO of MD Communications, will match the donations received up to £2,000.

Discover more about the incredible work of each charity, Reverse Rett and Skylarks.

Silent Auction

We also have a silent auction which started on 17 December and will run until Christmas eve where the highest bidder will win lunch (plus 1) at the Delaunay in London, with Eduardo Reyes, Commissioning Editor of the Gazette, and Matt Byrne, Deputy Editor of The Lawyer magazine.

They both promise to spill the beans on the sector secrets over the last 50 years between them. Gerard McDermott is kindly sponsoring the lunch and has started the silent action rolling with an initial bid. To place your bid please email: [email protected] with your amount and then donate here. If you don't believe us then watch the video from Matt Byrne.

The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.

A date will be set for lunch in the first few months of 2022 (Government restrictions permitting).

Thank you so much for your time, encouragement and support.
