Sally Barnett

Sally Barnett was introduced to Alex’s Wish by now-fellow Trustee Glynis Wright.  Speaking of her appointment as a Trustee Sally said, “I’ve been a barrister in family law for 31 years and have always been passionate about the work I do to support and help children and families. When Glynis first mentioned Alex’s Wish and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy I admit that I wasn’t very familiar with the disease but I was happy to meet with Emma.  Emma fizzes with energy and is incredibly effervescent and we had a really good conversation which led me to choose Alex’s Wish as the Chambers Charity of the Year.  We have since made Alex’s Wish our permanent charity for chambers and when Emma approached me about potentially becoming a Trustee I jumped at the chance.  This fabulous charity does such amazing work raising funds to research and bring to all children suffering with Duchenne treatments and, ultimately, a cure.  Supporting Emma and becoming a Trustee of Alex’s Wish really is the least I can do.”
