Cbeebies presenter, Katy Ashworth, has become ambassador to the Bristol networking group, Freelance Mum.
The ‘I Can Cook’ presenter and children’s entertainer, joined Freelance Mum earlier this year, when she guest spoke at their Brave, Bold and Bonkers event in March on International Women’s Day.
A freelancer and mum to Charlie (3) Katy is no stranger to the world of freelancing and motherhood “It’s a real honour to be ambassador for Freelance Mum. As a busy freelance mum, I know how bonkers it is, juggling your career around children. Freelance Mum gives people a chance to connect with others in the same boat. It’s a real lifeline and great to be part of’.
Founder of Freelance Mum and voiceover artist, Faye Dicker said “I’m delighted Katy is joining us. From the moment we first spoke, we just clicked – we shared the same understanding of freelancing and motherhood. When Katy guest spoke in March, she instantly connected with the group. She might be a celebrity, but she ‘gets it’, people relate to her world and her to ours. The mums and little ones all love her’.
Freelance Mum runs networking events in Bristol, which allow parents in business to network and crucially, bring their children. Born of Faye Dicker’s own need, after having children, Freelance Mum started as a blog and podcast in 2013, to help freelance parents connect. The networking events launched in July 2014, after realising there was a need for parents to meet face to face.
The group now meets twice a month at Windmill Hill City Farm and St Paul’s Church in Southville. Attracting up to 40 mums and their children, to each meeting.
