The charity perspective with Julia Knight

Having looked around for different perspectives it was quite apparent I was missing charities for my “coping with covid” series.  Luckily Julia Knight contacted me through the local village group.  She told me about a charity she worked for involving a medical condition that is not too well known.  Like many charities, they’ve had to consider how they can cope with changes in the world, generosity and campaigning during these hard times.


Julia is the press manager for Lyme Disease UK and talks to us about ticks, the charity and coping with covid.  She also tells us a little about the disease from her personal experience and how this affected her life, relationship and career!  From her beginnings in the military to nursing and working in other countries.

In this one we discuss:

  • 90 year olds & zoom
  • being bed bound for 7 years
  • why she is unable to read books
  • securing funding
  • Bransby horses
  • remote working
  • fancy dress quizzes
  • Powerpoint voice overs

Life is different for everyone, covid has affected all and Julia tells us about her family and parents.  We also discuss what it is the one thing she wants to do when lockdown is over
