When Nicky’s best friend died of breast cancer back in 2009, she was determined to make a difference to others but first she had to fix herself.

Nicky lost her best friend back in 2009, and it was then seeing what little help they received in the way of financial help, she decided she had to try and make a difference, even if that was a small one. She realised that if she were to help people she first had to fix herself. So after 4 years of grieving and a kick up the bottom she so desperately needed she started to make tiny footsteps in the whole “starting a charity” process.


It hasn’t been easy but one she doesn’t regret. She has great friends who support her and a great team around her. She has an accounting background and tonnes of heart and compassion. You can read all about her journey on the “My Story” tab.


Nicky Moss – Founder/Trustee

Emma’s been a trustee from the start.

Emma’s been a trustee from the start. Emma was Nicky’s first choice for a trustee.  They were friends and they think very similar so it was an easy choice when thinking of a trustee.  She’s currently employed by Nottage Joinery as an office administrator.  She took part in the Sky Dive in 2015, her son Dale did London to Paris back in 2016 and she’s about to embark on the Euro 3 City Cycle along with Dale in 2022.  She’s great at helping an event come together and thinks logically.  She’s an asset to the charity and we couldn’t be without her.


Emma Thomas – Trustee

Cath is the charity’s social butterfly.

Cath was born in Cardiff, she is one of 5 brothers and sisters, she is married to Keith and has 2 grown up sons.  She’s also a Grandma now too.  She was the headmistress of St Clare’s School in Porthcawl.  She is retired but has worked all over the UK and because of the diversity needed for her job it makes her an ideal trustee.  She’s joined us as a new member a number of years ago now with drive and passion which is totally infectious.  We can’t ever see us without her.
