Secretary & Trustee

Christie Bower

Co Founder of JUMP & proud Mum

to Jacob, Darcy and Rufus.

I'm a big part of JUMP & am very hands on when it comes to arranging additional fundraising efforts.


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.

 I became a Trustee in 2018. 

I got involved with this wonderful charity because of my daughter, Sienna, who has complex medical needs.  We benefitted from the support of this team & still do to this day.  JUMP inspired me to want to be a part of the amazing team.

JUMP is a truly inspiring charity and I was honored 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.
