Our Team

 

Memory Co-ordinator & Assistant Photographer -

From the point of referral through to the day of a child's memory photography , I'm there to ensure that everything runs smoothly. My aim is to create memories that are tailored to every child we support, ensuring that we get the very best for every family we meet. We hope to reach more families than ever before, building great partnerships with the individuals & organisations that refer families to us, & to ensure that Jump is financially sustained for the future. When not with Jump it is likely that I'll be on an adventure with my Sausage Dog - Liam!

 

Trustee -

Despite all the pain and emotion in the days, months and years that have followed, I and all Jacobs' family and friends get huge comfort through sharing our memories of him, and watching all the photos and videos we had of him. To see his smile, hear his voice and remember our times together is wonderful; I wish a service like Jump had existed during Jake's life – he would have loved being the centre of attention!

Ambassador - Laura Prince.

I work as a Mental Health Nurse, & volunteer as a photography assistant for many of the memories Jump provides attending most events, & help form part of the team that makes our mascot - Tigeroo come to life!

Trustee -

I have been with the charity since it formed in 2004. I had an amazing 22 year career as an Infantry soldier with the Queen's Lancashire Regiment serving until 1997 and receiving an MBE from the Queen in the New Year's Honours list of 1994. I have been married to Treasurer -Linda for 35 years, & have two daughters and two wonderful grandsons. I am a massive sports fan and avid Manchester United supporter, and also enjoy Rugby, Golf and my other interests include history and reading about WW1 and WW2.



Chair Lady -

As well as being Jacob's Little Nanna I helped in founding and establishing JUMP Children's Charity. I was able to capture many special and unique moments that our family spent with Jacob and many more that remind us that he had many happy times and lots of fun despite his illness. I am the Chairperson of JUMP Childrens Charity and always strive to encourage and motivate our amazing team to increase our support so that we can grow our services, and reach out to as many children as we can who are challenged by life limiting health conditions. My personal ambition is for JUMP to become a National Award Winning Charity, providing our unique service to children with life limiting illnesses and offering, employment, volunteering and artistic development opportunities within local communities. To provide much needed funding for JUMP - I became a director of a new Community Interest Company - Jump-Imaging.

Director of Photography & Social Media organisation.

After completing my Photography degree, I have been lead photographer for Jump since a chance encounter in 2006 with Christine - the charities Chair Lady. I have photographed over 400 memories & trained many up & coming photographers to allow Jump to provide the fantastic product that is our current memory package.We work closely with each family to allow them to personalise their individual memory - whether it be studio portraits at home, a birthday party or a special event. In 2012 we set up a Community Interest Company - Jump-Imaging (www.jump-imaging.co.uk) that provides photography services in Specialist Schools & donates all profits made to Jump Childrens Charity.
