Kristy was part of a team that delivered a Modern Slavery Garden at Chelsea Flower Show in 2016, to their delight they won a gold medal. Kristy said ‘The idea was to raise awareness of the crime and help victims. Theresa May visited the garden, I was impressed as it was a difficult time and yet she kept her promise to support us, and later announced a £35 million fund to fight modern slavery at source. The PM is serious about fighting this horrendous crime and I am too. We reached over 5 million people on twitter and 3 million on TV with the message that modern slavery is in our streets behind closed doors and we can get victims help, thanks to the BBC, RHS and Piers Morgan.
Kristy grew up in Sussex and received an honours degree in Contemporary Fine Art from Northampton University. She lives with her husband of twenty-four years and their two children.
