Introducing our 'Mikey's Angel'

We're very excited to welcome a new member to the Guy's Gift team. Guy’s Gift has teamed up with The Mikey Abdou Foundation to provide more support for bereaved children in Warwickshire. The Foundation is supporting our new post holder, Mary Hutchings, who is a counsellor providing one-to-one support.  

 Mary Hutchings - our 'Mikey's Angel'.

Mary Hutchings, known as 'Mikey’s Angel', said, “I am really excited to be joining Guy’s Gift and am grasping this fantastic opportunity to learn, support and give as much as I can. The children that I have met so far have been amazing and a good reminder of the felt concept of life. Already it feels like a special place to have landed and I am looking forward to doing what I can. Jackie and Stuart are clearly passionate and conscientious about what they offer and are both inspiring to be with. I feel I have a talent to work with people, but like lots of things talent is useless without opportunity, so I am excited to be on board and part of the team.”

The Mikey Abdou Foundation was established to aid and support children in memory of Mikey. The Foundation was formed by family and friends coming together in memory of Mikey, to leave a lasting legacy and try to make a difference in his honour. To find out more, visit the Foundation's website.
