On a miserable, chilly London morning, I braved the London underground to Old Street. As I walked down the road towards The Sharpe’s Children Foundation, it was obvious that the amount of road and pedestrian traffic would mean that a lot of people would see the charity office in passing.
I was met at the door by none other than Daragh O’Malley, who was genuinely pleased to greet a visitor and was as charming as ever. Yvette Leavy, the administrator, was also there and we all sat down to a cup of coffee and a long chat.
Daragh is very passionate about the charity and everything it hopes to achieve. It was inspiring hearing the plans they had and the trials they had already been through, and I was proud to be able to reaffirm the commitment of myself and the Sharpe Chefs to their aims.
It didn’t matter that it was a miserable day, that London was overcast and that it hadn’t stopped raining since I’d left the station. I came away feeling that this charity was going to achieve and I will be watching them every step of the way.
