My name is Wendy Simpson and I am the charity Coordinator for River Kids. I am married and have two children; they are 24 and 26 so will not thank me for calling them children!
I have been involved with fund raising for 15 years, first at my children’s schools and then with Children 1st in Edinburgh.
I have been involved in various events with Children 1st and helped with Gardening Scotland when Children 1st was the chosen charity. I have lived in West Lothian for 27 years and feel it is home. I set up River Kids with Donny Hughes, and I was one of the original trustees.
