Welcome Emily Riggs

Iris and Wool Emily Riggs 800x550

We're delighted to welcome Emily Riggs as our newest ambassador for the Childhood Cancer Association.

Emily knows first-hand the challenges of a childhood cancer diagnosis, as when she was just 10 years old, Emily was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Shortly after her diagnosis, her mother sadly lost her own battle to breast cancer.

She has now designed a life with purpose, after merging her love of design and fashion with merino wool, by founding the fashion brand Iris and Wool, and donating $1 from every sale to support the work of that we do.

Emily has also kindly donated some gorgeous merino wool beanies (pictured below) which will be included in our Hospital Support Packs, which are given to families at time of diagnosis.

It's great to have Emily as part of the team.
