Banana Chat - meet Lisa Hyde

by Banana Crumble | Jun 19, 2019

My name is Lisa Hyde and I am a full time Mum, carer and teaching assistant. I work locally in the speech and language department with children ranging from reception to year 2. My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis but that doesn’t stop us as a family. My husband and I do triathlons, marathons, ultras, nuclear races etc. Our daughter is fantastic at swimming, dancing, gymnastics and above all she fights CF everyday with a smile on her face. She’s an inspiration.
