Jayne is a truly inspirational mum, having experienced some of the toughest challenges a parent will ever face. Jayne’s second daughter Molly was born with severe special needs in 1994, and Jayne quickly discovered how limited the respite and after-school facilities were for children with special needs. It was a challenging time for the whole family, but then in 1999 Molly’s big sister Amy passed away after contracting Meningococcal Meningitis, aged just 8.
In Amy’s memory, Jayne’s family set up the charity Amy’s House in 2003, offering a place for children like Molly to play with other special needs children outside of school, fundraising for carers so their parents could have respite on a Saturday. Just as Jayne was getting her life back on track, tragedy struck again in 2011 when Molly died aged 17.
Five years on, Jayne’s family have now launched Molly’s Mates as a sister charity (in every sense) to Amy’s House, offering activities and life skills training to teenagers with special needs. Inspired by the memory of her beautiful daughters, Jayne and her family have made an extraordinary difference in their community.
