You might know that I am Director of Regional Support for the Federation of Image Professionals International (FIPI). We decided that we would all make a collective effort to do something for charity within our regional groups. Our FIPI Midland Group, headed up by Judith Mercer decided to join in with the Worcester Race for Life. As it was a Sunday many of our group couldn’t make it as they already had commitments, so we ended up being just the three of us, Judith from the Worcestershire/Gloucestershire border, Nicky from Moseley and me from Warwick. Both consultants trained by First Impressions. My mum and daughter joined us too.
We decided to wear our best shade of pink in true image professional style! So I’m in cool and bright, and Nicky and Judith in warm pink. We had decided to do 10k – we just walked and chatted – far more civilized that running!
As we were doing the walk for FIPI, it seemed only fitting that I should do the walk in honour of Elaine Fraser. She was a fantastic trainer for First Impressions and she trained me in colour and cosmetics in 2004. Just as I took over the running of the businesses in 2010, Elaine became ill and after a very short illness we lost her to bowel cancer. She absolutely loved colour and was a real inspiration to me.
If anyone feels able to sponsor us, the page is still open at https://www.justgiving.com/lynbromley
I will look forward to seeing all the other regions charity ideas. #FIPIGives
