I am absolutely thrilled to announce that the utterly delightful @hannahjayne_1990
will be guest hosting the mother of all nights fundraiser.
if you've had the pleasure of meeting hannah before, you'll understand when i say this is one woman you don't want to miss. if haven't, then my goodness, what a wonderful treat you have in store.
hannah jayne smith was diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder when she was just four-years-old. the crippling illness took hold of her and her family for many years, until, aged 11, hannah finally received the help she needed. her story is one of heartache and sadness, but so much more it’s of the unconditional love between a family, hope, bravery and immense strength.
for most of her adult life, hannah has worked tirelessly with various mental health charities and organsiations to help raise awareness. she also gained an army of support after appearing on channel 4 tv show first dates back in 2017, where she spoke openly about her experiences with anxiety.
and i were fortunate enough to attend a mental health seminar recently where hannah was a speaker, and her presentation was unlike anything either of us had ever heard before. so much so that after the event i asked hannah if she could come everywhere with me in future, certain in the thought that i'd never feel sad again with her around. thankfully, she didn't think i was a weird stalker and readily volunteered her time when i asked her to guest host the mother of all nights. despite everything she’s been through, this sassy, confident, highly capable and articulate young woman with a wicked sense of humour has well and truly given the middle finger to her mental health issues and is thriving. like a ray of sunshine, she has a charm and enthusiasm for life that is positively infectious and we can't wait for her to light up the room at the mother of all nights.
thank you so much hannah, we're super-excited to see that beautiful smiley face again on the 11th.
