She has led PR campaigns for charities such as Alzheimer’s Society and Gingerbread and engaged the national media with scoops such as ‘The Search for the Witham Bowl’. Jayne’s career has led to her working with high-profile figures and celebrities ranging from the Archbishop of Canterbury, Sir David Attenborough and Sadie, David Blunkett’s guide dog.
