I'm a longtime patron of The Kirsty Club, part of Francis House Family Trust, and over the years I've managed the website, helping the campaign raise £7.5 million to secure the future of Francis House Children's Hospice in Manchester. It's an incredibly important facility, providing care for children and young people with life limiting conditions, and respite for the families.

This weekend DesignKarma flipped new version of The Kirsty Club website live – again designed in spare time and donated to the charity. It's an honour to be allowed to run the website, and we have plans to add some cool new features and content in the new year.

In the meantime please check out the new website to find out more about the charity, how you can get involved and donate.
