[Anne Harris at her sewing machine] Intrepid grandmother Anne Harris' has taken her hobby of kiting to the extreme; she designs and creates giant inflatable creatures, using little more than a domestic sewing machine!

As time has passed, Anne's creatures have evolved to be able to come out to play in most weather conditions; the use of "blowers" has enabled these wonderful inflatables to come down to earth and to be inflated, even when Mother Nature takes the wind away!

They can even be inflated indoors!

Her amazing family of giant cuddly creations have taken her to Kiting Festivals all over the world, where they have made friends with young and old alike.

Anne loves children and has always been determined to find a way in which to raise money for charities that benefit children and young people.

This desire has spurred Anne's imagination to even grander ideas; she has been planning her most challenging and spectacular project to date; a gigantic inflatable walk-through coral reef, which would act as a nucleus around which to raise money.

During treatment for breast cancer in the second half of 2003, Anne finally had the time to start turning her plans into reality and The Anne Harris Children's Fund was born!

Anne has become a full time carer for her mother. This has necessitated Anne and her husband moving in to her mother's house. In April 2004, Anne plans to return to her job providing night-care in a residential home for adults with learning disabilities.
