I have often been asked if Danni Beach is my real name, as it a great sounding name, yes I married Mr Beach and not only for his great name!! I am a mum of two fantastic girls and more animals than is sensible!! Growing up on Ashdown forest surrounded by dogs, goats, the odd cow and horses has instilled a life long love of animals and the great outdoors in me. Most of our furry friends are rescues; even our Guinea pigs and hamsters are rescued. Our newest, perhaps not furry, members of the menagerie are Bee’s; yes I can rock a Bee suit!!
Family, friends and adventure are at the centre of my life’s passions. The four of us are all water sports mad; in, on, under we are not fussy! Although Stand up Paddleboarding is my favourite, even for someone as uncoordinated as me!
I have always be driven to want to help both animals but also people, at university as part of my degree, I spent a year photographing a marine life rescue ship called the Ocean Defender. An ex Norwegian whaling ship that had been turned into a research vessel with an onboard marine hospital. We attended oil spills and help with research project like dolphin surveys (It was an amazing year!) I have since spent time volunteering in refugee camps, distributing food and clothing and working on an art project in refugee camp The Jungle in Calais. I have also been involved with the brilliant homeless charity, Sussex Homeless Support in Brighton. Helping others has always been really important to me.
