Leanne Fletcher’s mama – and Cooper’s too!
Co-founder and general dog’s body, Leanne is the driving force behind Fletcher’s Fund. She is the one with the passion for play and art therapy and childhood development.
Leanne came to Carlisle from Milton Keynes to study Primary Education at University of Cumbia, where she specialised in inclusion. Life then happened to her, and she didn’t enter the teaching profession after all. Instead, by way of renovating a derelict house, she found herself working, living and breathing life as a Letting Agent, until she was pregnant with Fletcher, when she moved on to become an office manager for a small local business. Sadly, she later had to give up work to become Fletcher’s carer. She is now full time mum to Cooper, born in 2016 and she has worked tirelessly to make Fletcher’s Fund what it is today.
You will find her anywhere and everywhere. She’s always on the go, always busy and can talk for England. She’ll probably need a cuppa – coffee, black, two sugars – if you do come across her!
Lee Fletcher and Cooper’s daddy Leanne’s long suffering husband
Co-founder and the muscle of the operation, Lee works full time for a large, local business as a plant operator (aka digger driver). When not at work, Lee enjoys playing computer games, cycling and watching films.
Cumbrian born and bred (Dalston, to be specific), he is proud of his home town and county and bears the typical Cumbrian traits of loyalty, hard work and resilience in the face of adversity. A quiet man, on first meeting, but don’t let that fool you. He’s got some great ideas as well as some rubbish jokes!
Lee helps organise events, and can be usually found loading, unloading and driving the van and erecting the marquee. He’s a pro behind a bar and the master of Play Your Cards Right. Fletcher’s Fund wouldn’t and couldn’t exist without Lee’s unwavering support of Leanne. They fight like cat and dog, but they make quite the team!
He probably won’t want a brew, but if he does, leave the teabag in- builder style!
