Coppafeel! founder says the joy of setting up a charity comes from discovering the good in people – The Sun

I AM regularly asked what the highs and lows of setting up a charity are and, for me, the joy comes from discovering the good in people.

I had not experienced kindness like this until I set up CoppaFeel! – and to this day it still takes me by surprise.

The lows are few and far between, but what I struggle with the most is when something unexpected happens and I have had very little control. And, as we all know, I like to have control.

While in the capital, some of the team and I decided it was time to give our big inflatable boob tent a wash since it has been sat in storage since a muddy festival a few years ago.

Yes, I realise I wrote about a trip to LA in last week’s column, but it’s not all glitz and glam, you know.

What I love most about our charity is that you could be working on a high- profile photoshoot one minute and cleaning the next.

On the morning of the big clean, we discovered our beautiful awareness van – aka Belinda the Boobmobile – had been vandalised and sprayed with graffiti. We were absolutely gutted.

I will never get my head around silly people defacing charity property – or any property, in fact. To say the day started sombre is an understatement, but here comes the positive bit.

A little while ago I put a post on social media asking if anyone had some space and a hose to clean our tent since our office does not have any outside space.
