Our Team

We’re a friendly bunch here at FYF, each as dedicated as the last and not that we’re biased at all, but we definitely have the best team in the world. Read on to find out who we are and what we do.

Cor Hutton

Cor lost her hands and feet to sepsis back in 2013 and set up our charity to offer peer support to amputees in all stages of their life and journey. She can be found spreading the word about FYF and visiting new Troopers. Cor also meets with health, education and NHS personnel, and is a motivational speaker. Despite being a triathlete and world record holder, when it comes to making tea or coffee she’s quick to play the ‘amputee’ card…

Nicola Booth

Nic keeps everything running at Finding Your Feet – the team regularly receive emails from her at 4 am… She’s in charge of strategic planning, oversees the day-to-day running of our charity and is the point of contact for initial enquiries. The only time she stops working is to have a laughing fit at her favourite joke: “What’s Cor short for?  Cos she’s got no legs!”

Kerr Ferguson

Kerr handles the marketing, PR and design for the charity. He spends a lot of his time photographing and videoing the amputees we work with and telling their inspirational stories. Despite almost always being dressed in grey, he’s actually a very cheery person… mostly.  He also wrote these bios so the rest of the team currently aren’t speaking to him. You can clearly see him laughing at his own jokes in that picture.

Nikki Etheridge

Nikki began volunteering with Finding Your Feet when she lost her leg below the knee, but she has since grown to be an invaluable member of staff. She’s an integral member of our Well-being Team, as well as helping Nic with some top-level project management. She loves Daim bars but she won’t share them with anyone, not even Meg.  Meg is her leg. Yeah she named her prosthetic leg – what’s strange about that?

Lesley Lawrie

Les is a below-knee amputee who volunteered for the charity before coming onboard. She’s based in Fife, and as well as playing a key role in our Well-being Team, she coordinates clubs and supports Troopers across all our areas too. She’s also the one that keeps our website all shiny and up to date, manages our private online groups for amputees and helps Troopers with any tech issues they have. When she’s not working on all of that, she’s kept busy having to explain her Fife slang to the rest of the group. Who is this Ken she always speaks of?

Paul Johnson

After benefitting from Finding Your Feet’s support, Paul joined the team. He’s a double above-knee amputee and uses his experience to talk at schools, businesses and events. When he’s not out spreading the word, he’s one half of the FYF marketing department, handling social media and design. He’s right into his tunes and doesn’t hide the fact that he thinks the songs that the rest of us like are terrible even though it’s widely agreed he has the worst taste in music…

Eilish McNaught

Eilish came on board on an internship, right before the Covid pandemic hit – which meant we barely had a chance to say hi before we said goodbye. Thankfully we managed to bring her back as part of the team to coordinate our fundraising activities. She’s planned some brilliant fundraisers and she can be very persuasive… so get ready to be roped into them. In other news, she’s a bit obsessed with Harry Potter. She’s one of those people who are convinced they are a Gryffindor. We don’t have the heart to tell her she’s a classic Hufflepuff.

Dawn Hogg

Dawn is our Well-being Officer and came on board to fulfil that much-needed support role alongside our Counsellors. Dawn is also our main Safeguarding contact and has been working in emotional support roles for over 20 years now which makes her a perfect addition to the team. She brings brilliant ideas to the table about new ways to provide support for the FYF Troopers. It’s obvious how lucky we are to have her but we can’t let her know she’s too good for us… shhhh!

Joan-Anne Quinn

Joan-Anne wears two hats within the FYF team – firstly she’s our Volunteer Co-ordinator, supporting our volunteers in everything they do for us and our Troopers. She’s also our Day Hub supervisor, handling everything that goes on in the Hub, from bookings to maintenance, and much more. On top of her role with us, she’s always volunteering, supporting and helping people in her spare time. One might say she’s almost too kind… we’ll be keeping an eye on this one…

Gordon Macdougall

After volunteering as a Peer Supporter and handling check-in calls with Troopers, Gordon was the perfect fit for our Well-being Team. He’s an above-knee amputee and uses his experience to raise the spirit of the amputees he calls and ensures they know we’re there for them. When he’s not chatting to the Troopers, you’ll often find him winding up someone in the team – they probably had it coming – right?

Amy Thomson

Amy joined as our Administration Assistant to help out with the increasing workload of our team, and has since taken over arranging the taxis for Trooper transport. She says she’s usually the quiet one but a little time in the FYF office is already beginning to change that – just hoping we don’t create a monster with our influence here!

Dennis The Dog

Dennis has three legs. It doesn’t stop him from running, jumping, swimming or just generally being the best thing ever, which is why he is the official FYF mascot! Woof!
