Teresa Stein – Office Manager/Administration/Accounts
Teresa works half time for the charity and half time for our MF Clinics. She is responsible for looking after and organising our patient clinics as well as helping with the organisation of events, accounts and training meetings for the charity. She is an extremely busy lady and keeps us all in check!
Sam Doe – Charity Administration Assistant
Sam volunteered for the charity in the early days, helping out where she could, but as the charity got larger, it became apparent regular support and help was essential to continue with our work. Sam works 10 hours a week in the MF office supporting the fundraising activities, getting resources ready for meetings and sending information out to families and ketogenic centres around the UK and Ireland.
Maureen Benn (Mo) – Keto Cook
Maureen has an extensive background in cooking and hotel catering and as a keen supporter of Matthew’s Friends, 3 years ago she combined her passion for food and her support of our charity, joining Neil (Keto chef) in being a ketocook for us. Mo is responsible for recipe development and also helps families that are struggling to make tasty meals using their prescriptions. You can see Maureen demonstrating some of her recipes on our keto cooking channel.
Neil Palliser-Bosomworth (Chef Neil) – Keto Chef
Neil Palliser-Bosomworth is an independent consultant chef with 19 years of experience working in various NHS hospitals in the UK, catering for different patient groups and their unique dietary needs. He has also worked as head chef at the Marie Curie Hospice and St Oswalds Hospice. About 9 years ago he was introduced to our founder, Emma, as she had pioneered the cooking with Ketocal range for Nutricia. Neil and Emma spent a great deal of time together as she took him through the ketogenic diet and all that it entailed. Neil has since flown with this and ketogenic dietary therapies are now one of his specialities. He carries out Nutricia ketocooking days all over the UK and also works with Mo in our recipe development kitchen. Neil regularly travels abroad to demonstrate cooking with ketocal and can be found at Matthew’s Friends meetings. You can see Neil in action on our ketocooking channel.
