Meet the Coast Along for WaterAid Ambassadors

6 September 2011

This year we are really happy to be working with seven fantastic Coast Along Ambassadors.

Not only will they be joining us and walking for Coast Along on Saturday 10 September, they will also be keeping you awash with all of the action using the #CoastAlong tag on Twitter too!

We would like to say a big thank you to WaterAid corporate partners Premier Inn for providing accommodation for all of our Ambassadors.

Walking with: her daughters

Liz Owen and her childrenAfter attending fashion college 20 years ago, I fell into fashion and lifestyle consumer PR and have since worked for some top high street brands, however, nothing can beat taking a backseat for my two little girls and I’m now freelancing for smaller lifestyle brands as and when they need it.

I started my blog Mummy In Manolos as a great networking tool, reaching out to other mothers who have a similar lifestyle to my own – posts range from fashion and friends to music and mayhem, all with a parental angle and a touch of tongue-in-cheek humour.
