Barry & Kirsteen Cook

Family Ambassadors

Barry, a Vice President at Barclays, and his wife Kirsteen are the parents of our Young Ambassador, Jenny Cook, and her brother Alex. 

Jenny was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at four years old and has undergone numerous operations and procedures at Yorkhill Hospital, including the removal of her large bowel.  

Jenny is now a healthy 15-year-old and she and her family have raised over £200,000 for Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity through a wide variety of fundraising events including bag packs, school events and the annual 'Tea Jenny' event.  

Jenny's family regularly attend Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity events, and Jenny herself is a great spokesperson for the charity. Jenny has spoken at many of our fundraising events and appeared in the media to help us promote our upcoming events and campaigns.  

Barry and Kirsteen are delighted to be Family Ambassadors for the charity, and are always keen to help support other parents and families who have babies and children receiving care and treatment at the children's hospital.
