Where it all began

Ceri has been involved in youth participation and youth work since the age of 13 and her first role was being a member of Dudley Youth Council. Ceri continued to patient govern for Birmingham Children’s Hospital with a large focus on participation and campaigning for the rights of disabled children and young people. Her public service has led her to win 12 Community Awards; one of which was ‘Build-a-Bear’s Workshop Huggable Heroes Award’. This is when she had her first contact with mascots and realised how important they are to children.

Whilst being a Diana Award holder and a courageous citizen, she made friends with another courageous citizen, Liam Fairhurst, who raised £320,000 for Clic Sargent, which is a charity that supports young people who have cancer. Sadly, Liam passed away while battling his own fight with cancer and Clic Sargent supported him through this time. Additionally, Ceri’s Uncle, Kevin Round, died in a motorbike accident months after this and because of the impact that this had on both families Ceri decided to start up ‘More Mascots Please CIC’ in memory of her friend, Uncle and for their relatives too.
