International Womens Day

March 8, 2018

In what has become second nature to me these days 

i have been honoured on many occasion with been called an Honorary lady 

ive been thinking about women who have inspired myself over the time ive been Big Pink Dress

let me start with someone who i really dont mention as much as i should

my Beautiful wife Cath 

not only has she put up with her husband wearing dresses for over three years ,been shoved aside while people want selfies 

and having to put up with my never ending busy schedule .


Next amazing woman has to be Katie Bulmer Cooke ,the one time Tv apprentice 

I have  never met anyone with quite as much drive as Katie 

truly inspiring 

Now a Fitness expert ,Radio presenter ,Tv Personality, Speaker ,Newspaper columnist  to name just a few 

ive had the pleasure of knowing Katie for a few years and its been an amazing experience to watch her grow  and expand her empire and still be one of the most grounded people ever .


Next has to be the  inspirational  Kerry King -Neale

an incredibly humble lady  not only does she help run one of the biggest groups on facebook the Geek Asylum

but endlessly helping others with fundraising 

always thinking of others first 

proud to call her a friend


My next amazing lady is Stephanie Kaire

my unpaid PA lol

she works so so hard and brings up two lovely children and still finds time to endlessly help Big Pink Dress Fundraising 

id go as far to say i probably wouldnt still be doing this without her help 

 no list of inspiring women would be complete without Claire Douglas 

a wonderful friend and a lady of sheer will power

every year she puts on the amazing RUN2RESPECT race in Silksworth Sunderland

being ex forces i attend every year 

incredibly kind lady 

lover her to bits 




my lists could go on and on but ill mention one last person i know 

Claire Lomas Spincer 

anyone who knows Claires life story cant fail to be inspired by a never be beaten  attitude 

ive had the honour of meeting Claire on a few occasions and watched her do the Great North Run in a Bionic suit .

Claire was paralysed from the chest down after a riding accident but truly didnt let that stop her zest for life .


too all the women who work so hard at inspiring others even if they dont realise they are doing it 

its an absolute honour to know you 

happy International womens day xxxx






next amazing woman
