A CHILDCARE lecturer had her charity work recognised at Downing Street.

Diane Amey, from Fareham College, went to a reception evening with the Prime Minister’s wife.

Diane and her husband Lee were praised by Samantha Cameron because they have raised over £18,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Diane and Lee’s four-year-old son Finley was born with a rare genetic disorder called Apert syndrome.

Finley’s condition requires him to go to a specialist craniofacial centre in Oxford.

Ronald McDonald House Charities provide accommodation so that Diane and her husband can stay close to him.

Diane said: ‘It was an honour to meet Samantha Cameron.

‘She really appreciates the work of Ronald McDonald House Charities and how important it is to provide accommodation in hospitals for parents with sick children so families can stay together.

‘She was particularly interested in our work and efforts as supporters of the charity and our family.’
