Outside of he work with Upstream, Marion is on the committee of a charity foundation Project Impact, something that she is also very passionate about. The whole ethos and goal of Project Impact is ‘people helping people’.  Unlike a lot of charities there are no expenses, overheads or wages taken from any of the events so that every cent raised go’s directly to a specific project outlined and communicated before the event.
