Heather was a conscientious supporter of the FSI and its vision of educating charities to make them more effective. A speaker at their conferences, a performance trainer, a mentor on Big Charity Weeks and hosting a birthday party in their honour in her own back garden in 2013. This event required every party goer to come in an outfit selected from a Charity Shop and every person looked oh so grand! Supporting the FSI allows them to continue this essential work.

Following a Board and Governance Review of Working Chance, Heather liaised closely with the Chief Executive to ensure the charity was positioned to maximise working opportunities for women re-entering society following serving prison convictions. In 2014, Heather contributed to a speed recruitment event at Holloway Prison giving women the chance the opportunity to practice their interviewing skills and prepare for their future lives. It was an unexpectedly moving afternoon where she met a group of strong and inspiring women who simply wanted a second chance. Supporting Working Chance gives them that.
