RiverKids - Trustees


Fiona Hsylop


Fiona Hyslop MSP (Patron)

Fiona Hyslop MSP is the only original trustee for River Kids. As well as a regional MSP for the Lothians, Fiona is also Secretary for Cultural and External Affairs and attends as many meetings as she can.

Fiona has been involved with River Kids since the first meeting on October 31st 2005

Fiona lives in Linlithgow, West Lothian with her husband and three children and so this charity is very close to her heart. Fiona’s ability to bring the charity into the public eye has made a significant contribution to the charity over the years and helped to promote the charity and move it forward.




Wendy Simpson

Wendy Simpson
(Charity Co-ordinator)

My name is Wendy Simpson and I am the charity Coordinator for River Kids. I am married and have two children; they are 24 and 26 so will not thank me for calling them children!
I have been involved with fund raising for 15 years, first at my children’s schools and then with Children 1st in Edinburgh.

I have been involved in various events with Children 1st and helped with Gardening Scotland when Children 1st was the chosen charity. I have lived in West Lothian for 27 years and feel it is home. I set up River Kids with Donny Hughes, and I was one of the original trustees.
