For me, there’s no better sound than my two boys laughing and playing together (when they’re not squabbling over who get’s to press the button on the lift or who’s stick it was in the first place). I cherish their little fantasy games and their bear-cub rough and tumble. I know they're creating memories to treasure for a lifetime and it fills me with immense joy and pride.
Sadly not all children are lucky enough to have freedom and security to just be kids. Some have the weight of the world on their shoulders, be it through family circumstances or childhood illness. I set up Little Peach Portraits to try and capture the joy of childhood, and it’s going well, which is why I’ve decided to partner with children's charities to support the incredible work they do to give young people the chance to just be children.
So when you create your Little Peach Portrait, you are also helping to make sure that as many children as possible are getting to make the most of their precious childhood. That’s priceless.

Solving Kids’ Cancer provides families with hope, support and impartial advice throughout their cancer journey and helps them fundraise the hundreds of thousands of pounds needed to access treatment. Solving Kids’ Cancer also works to advance science through investment in clinical research here in the UK as well as advocating for more effective and less toxic treatments.
