Besides her prolific work for theatre, film and television Jane Asher is well known for her successful cake business and is a best-selling author.

“I was very moved to read of Daisy’s story, and very honoured to be invited to become a patron of the wonderful charity set up in her name.

I so much admire the way Sara and David, having had to endure every parent’s worst imaginable horror, are reaching out to other families to help them avoid some of the suffering and distress that can be caused by childhood epilepsy.

I’ve no doubt the lives of many children with this complex and debilitating condition will be transformed through their efforts, and I hope to do my bit to promote their excellent work.”
