‘I was just blown away’

 September 3, 2014 | Simon Jenkins

Campaign Board member Anne Siddell (Portuguese and Spanish 1976) is Company Secretary of United Business Media, based in London. Here Anne talks about her decision to support our research into the “slightly unsexy” area of incontinence, and our work to provide new products to help sufferers lead active and sociable lives.

She talks about being “blown away” by a visit to the textiles department at Leeds and meeting Montu Basak, whose postgraduate research with the Textiles Materials Innovations for Healthcare project is being supported by her donation.
