She is also very involved in making and donating beads to the Beads of Courage Programme with The Child Cancer Foundation. Children living with cancer receive beads for every procedure they go through. The colour and style of bead indicates what treatment they have received. For especially tough treatments a special bead is given and Lesley makes the most beautiful special beads for some very special and courageous children.
Lesley has recently started her own blog and you can read more about her work with the programme and some of the recipients on her blog.
