My name is Adam Tkacz and I’m a trustee of Lenny’s Legacy. It is clear, to me, from Roy and Mim’s story that we need to do more to raise awareness of all forms of baby loss and reduce the stigma associated with losing a child. It is essential that this is done via support for bereaved parents and their wider network, education of healthcare professionals & employers and doing this with open dialogues to reduce the isolation that is felt by bereaved parents. To do all this, honouring Lenny and Bhai, makes this one of the most important roles I have held! I am a Director within the Utilities industry and have been involved in Charity work outside of my professional life, with local Sheffield-based charities since 2017; as a volunteer and Trustee. Outside of work and Charitable work, I love exploring everything vibrant Sheffield has to offer and occasionally make noise in a few bands playing originals and covers!
