Mark Hunter brought Deputy PM Nick Clegg to meet Dan and Joanne Thompson on Thursday. Dan and Joanne founded Millie’s Trust after the tragic death of their nine month old daughter Millie at Ramillies Hall School, Cheadle Hulme in 2012.

“We never thought we’d get here this quickly – the whole thing, from starting our campaign, to everyone being trained will be about four-and-a-half years. We expected a much longer, more difficult slog. It’s amazing, we’re so pleased.” said Joanne to the MEN.
