Who We Are

Meet the Team

Christine Bentham

Co-Founder, Chairperson and Jacob's Little Nanna

It has been one of the greatest privileges of my life to be part of and to support JUMP Children's Charity. Getting to know the wonderful children and their families who face such uncertainty in their lives and experience limiting opportunities due to illness, continues to be our motivation to help to create and capture precious memorable moments for families.

Harriet Pratt

Community Development Manager

"JUMP is a very special charity that I am lucky to be a part of. I am here to support all the JUMP families, from arranging their memory photography service, organising fun and inclusive events, to simply being a kind listening ear when our families need to talk."

Kate Jarvis


"I love photographing memories for families to cherish & as a lead photographer for JUMP for almost 20 years I've been lucky enough to meet over 1000 amazing families"

Lynn Morris

Secretary and Trustee

"I have admired the work of JUMP since it's foundation. From 2019 I have taken on the role of Secretary.
I am excited to be involved with such an inspiring Charity."

Helen Jordan

HR & Governance/Trustee

"I have worked or volunteered in the charitable sector for the best part of 15 years. I believe passionately that when you make a living through the sector that it is important to support another through the donation of skills and time.I feel privileged to support a brilliant cause which supports fantastic children and young people in my homeland of the North West."

"JUMP is a truly inspiring charity and I was honoured to be asked to join as Treasurer & Trustee in December 2019. I'm looking forward to using my expertise to support JUMPs ambition and to helping as many families as possible to benefit from the memories that JUMP creates."

Parent Representative/Trustee

"I love being part of JUMP as they’ve supported my family and helped us to feel part of an understanding community of families."

Andrea Machin

Parent Representative/Trustee

"When I heard that Jump was looking for new trustees, I jumped at the chance. We have had memory books and experienced the memory days with our daughter, and I wanted to give something back as Jump is such a unique charity. 

I have previous experience of Chairing a successful disabled children's charity for over 15 years and am also a governor at a local special school."

Michelle Mutch


My name is Michelle and a few years ago I started to raise money for local charities. More recently I have started raising money for Jump Children’s Charity via raffles and events. I love supporting this very special charity, who provide lasting memories for very special children. I hope to become more involved now, as I am very proud to have become a trustee.
