Wishing All Our Families, Friends And Supporters A Very Merry Christmas
I am George's mummy and am so proud and honoured to have founded George's Windmills. I run the charity part-time whilst raising my other son, Thomas, and working three days a week in a school office.
Losing George was, and continues to be, an extremely traumatic experience and I felt that giving back to those who helped our family, whilst also putting smiles on poorly children's faces, was the perfect way to enable something good to come out of something so painfully sad.
I am extremely proud of the support we have received from our local community and am so thankful to everyone who shares our mission and donates to our cause.
I'm also extremely grateful to our trustees and volunteers who put such hard work into George's Windmills, allowing us to continue to grow whilst also supporting those families who need it the most.
I am George's daddy and am thrilled to be playing an important part in George's Windmills. My main role within the charity is to act as treasurer and deal with the monetary side of things.
I work full-time from home in the IT sector whilst also raising my son, Thomas. I am a keen gamer, golfer and football fan and when I am not working you'll find me enjoying a few drinks with friends in the sunshine or taking Thomas for long days out.
Having spent numerous nights in hospital with George, whilst also trying to hold down a full-time job and care for our other son, Thomas, Hayley and I know first-hand (more than most) how challenging life can be for families living life in and out of hospital and so I hope we can help as many families and children as possible in George's memory.
HI, I'm Allan (Hayley's dad) and I am extremely proud to be part of George's Windmills.
I am now retired and enjoy being with my grandchildren on a regular basis. Apart from working with this charity, my other interests are carp fishing and golf. Oh, I also follow Ipswich Town F.C, the less said about that the better!
I am no stranger to hospitals and aware of the support that families require and also how stressful the impact is on families staying in hospitals with their children who have long term illnesses .
I have lost 2 daughters to rare conditions, who sadly died in their early years. I never thought I would have to go through this again, but unfortunately we lost George (my Grandson) after a long fight. I am now, with his name and memory, hoping I can help and give support to others in similar situations.
George loved his short life and was most happy playing bowling, kicking a ball and running around. There was so much more to life that he missed, so by being involved I can, in a way, make him smile on me for helping his little friends.
Hi, I'm Becky, one of the trustees of George's Windmills.
I was asked by Hayley and Ant to be a part of this wonderful charity and I couldn't be more honoured.
Apart from being a mum to 2 children (and 2 dogs!), I currently work part time as an Apprenticeship Manager and have worked in paediatric wards in a London hospital in the past.
Hayley and I have been best friends since we were 11 years old and have been through so much together. We even became first time mums at the same time!
When it was discovered that George was poorly, we did everything we could as friends to rally round to help and support Hayley and her family. I visited George in hospital, came round for playdates and lent a helping hand and an ear for Hayley whenever she needed. George was like my nephew and I loved and cared for him deeply.
The loss of George broke all our hearts, so to be a part of George's Windmills means so much to me. Together, we hope to help many other children and families who need help and support like the Hatfields did.
