Jude has always been involved in community & charity projects since she was a Brownie. She has fund raised for a number of charities including the Cotswold Care Hospice, Cancer Research and Children in Need. She has taken part in a variety of community projects including creating a 'Magic Garden' for the Stepping Stones Playgroup and rejuvenating the "Lost Garden" at Dursley Primary School.
Jude was inspired to do even more volunteering on a international project, undertaking improvement works at the Hopes and Dreams Community Village in Sri Lanka and since played a large part in getting The Mears Foundation set-up. Jude co-project managed The Mears Foundation's second international project in Benoni, South Africa and played a big part in the organisation of subsequent projects at Sithabile Child and Youth Care Centre, South Africa.
