Introducing… The Bee Lady

Jean Bishop (aka The Bee Lady) is one very inspirational woman.

Jean dresses up as a bee to raise money for Age UK Hull and is a local hero. In 2013 Jean even went to the Pride of Britain Awards, where she met David Walliams, Carol Vorderman and the cast of Strictly Come Dancing.

You can catch Jean at the Championing Care panel at WOW Festival on 12 March – grab yourself a day pass now and check out what else you can see and do at WOW Hull from 10 – 12 March.

We chatted to Jean to find out what keeps her smiling and what it was like meeting David Walliams at The Pride of Britain Awards in 2013.
