Cathy Dunbabin

Advisor

The charity is very close to my heart as I’ve seen first-hand within my own family that with the right support, energy and belief, that lives can be turned around and families reunited. When Tony first told me about Hope & Vision I knew instantly that through my business networking company Opendoorz, that I could help spread the word and introduce the charity to business owners. I’m a huge believer in giving back and doing even just a little bit to make someone smile every day.
