Elizabeth Hutton – CEO
“My main responsibilities include working with the department of Health & organisations such as SANDS, Tommys, RCOG, RCM & Surestart to bring about change in public health messaging for stillbirth, distributing our information through hospitals, bounty, events & social media, fundraising & events as well as the day to day running of the charity.”
Elizabeth, who took over the charity in 2012, caught the eye of the Prime Minister in 2015 and was awarded a Point of Light Award for her efforts to educate mums on baby movements in the UK.
Lisa – General manager
My role is a real “mixed bag” – which is great, as I enjoy that no day is ever the same! I work closely with the CEO, Elizabeth, and assist her with the overall day-to-day running of the charity. I’m also responsible for much of our social media, which is really fun, I am really fortunate to speak to amazing people every day via our Facebook page and other social media outlets. I spend a lot of time talking to supportive businesses, arranging volunteers, answering general enquiries and juggling my two children.
Tracy – Fundraiser
“I heard about Kicks Count when my daughter was only 3 months old, I just could not imagine the heartache and pain of losing a baby so I wanted to get involved. I began collecting ‘rubbish’ off friends such as empty biscuit wrappers and used stamps to send off to raise cash for the charity, then I began helping with their fundraising programme. I look after our community fundraisers who organise their own events such as buggy walks, dress down days at work, have stalls at Christmas Fayres and baby sweepstakes.”
Kerry – Literature Distribution Manager
“I have been with Kicks Count since it first started. I started out fulfilling the initial sticker and leaflet requests and as the charity grew I became Manager of the Literature Distribution team. Our team supplies literature to individuals, professionals, events, businesses and groups nationwide. We distribute thousands of items each month with new requests coming in all the time. A good portion of my role is responding to these requests as well as maintaining our distribution database. Along with many trips to the local Post Office, and caring for my 5 year old rainbow, the charity keeps me extremely busy!”
Sharon – Literature Distribution
“I was introduced to Kicks Count by my sister Kerry who is the Literature Distribution Manager. It was clear the charity was growing at an incredible rate and dealing with the requests for literature was no longer a ‘one (wo)man job so I stepped up to help. I now deal with the literature requests from the Medical and Professional groups which includes Trusts, hospitals , GP surgeries and Children’s Centres. It has been a privilege to watch Kicks Count grow and it is great to see more and more health professionals , not only supporting us but recommending our website and literature to so many mums-to-be.”
