I try to spend as much time as I can in the office and have been told I often eat, sleep & breathe Cherished! It amazes me how much we have grown in the last 18 months and I can not wait to see where we will be in another 18 months time!

Jennifer Sutton Cherished Marketing
Jennifer joined Cherished Gowns recently and has brought different knowledge to the office team. With a degree in Marketing and Business studies and working in the Bridal Industry she has taken on many different aspects including organising the Volunteer Conference and helping in the office to deal with the media requests. It causes much amusement to the volunteers that at present she can't knit, crochet and has limited sewing knowledge but she can at least put together the packs and help in the office with sending out boxes to the hospitals.

Jo Barber, Volunteer Seamstress

I learnt to sew for Cherished. I was part of the same 'Brides 2014' Facebook page as a fellow member and as soon as I heard what she was setting up, I knew I had to get involved. My mum miscarried, as did a friend of mine, who has said that she was heartbroken that she had nothing for her baby to wear.I learnt basic sewing at school, but that was a long time ago! With the help and patience of several group members, I learnt how to do nappies and wraps (my own wedding dress went towards these!). As a young marketing professional, I am limited to sewing at weekends so I concentrate on these as I can do them quickly and well. I was thrilled to be advising other members at the last Volunteers Meet Up on how to master them!

Joanne Cockcroft, Office administrator & Crochet/ knit mentor
Joanne is a mentor who stumbled into the office wanting to do some crocheting and has become an integral part of the office team. She has a very organised mind and has helped to stream line the office to enable the putting together of packs quicker and is also on hand to over see any deliveries and is able to advise volunteers of any mistakes that can be easily rectified. As a mother of 2 boys she is kept busy at home but still finds time to crochet items and put kam snaps on nappies.
