Damien Douglas

My name is Damien Douglas and I am honoured to be a Trustee of Koins for Kids. My background is in Mental Health Nursing and though retired from that now my main activity is caring for my Dad and twin daughters all of whom have substantial needs.

I can really see the value in collecting money of all kinds to supply a pediatric MRI scanner that will save children lives decades into the future.

We help to recover and reuse coins and small change that to many people has little or no value and we can make great use of it Many thanks to all who donate in any way.
