What follows is a collection of stories, poetry, photographs and memories of our trustee, friend and inspiration; Kathleen Carter. Including personal reflections from Kath herself and tributes from friends and colleagues.

It’s hard for us to sum up the wonderful life of Kath into one book, but we wanted to try our best to commemorate the amazing woman she was.

Kathleen was always the driving force of Thrive Teesside and her impact on all of our work, past present and future, is immense.

Rest in peace Kath, forever in our hearts.
