Patsy has been married to Paul for over 30 years, and worked for Tesco for 10 years, before retiring to look after the grandchildren. She has been a Kinship Carer for some 9 years, and at first thought that they were the only ones going through this. After finding the Kinship Foster Carers Group page on Facebook and making some friends they finally were able to attend Kinfest for the first time in 2013, where they met the late Laura Warner and the other admin's, who made them feel extremely welcome. They were inspired and enthusiastic to go and fundraise, which led to them winning the Laura Warner Memorial Trophy, which Paul and Patsy treasure. She was asked to become admin and help other kinship carers to have an easier transition and be able to have a better understanding that they too, are not alone.
