ASHLEY SIMONS

Founder & Creator

Ashley found herself facing the unimaginable. At 24 weeks she went into unexpected labour with her twin girls. Esme Sarka was sadly stillborn, followed by her twin sister Isla Lenka. Their fight began immediately and Ashley made a promise to her girls that she would make a difference. 
Ashely set up the charity, Isla's Journey to provide care packages to neonatal units where Isla was cared for. This has now grown into the team providing regular packs to over 35 hospitals across the UK. Ashley found her love of crafting at this point, when she started making items to benefit those with premature or sick babies. From there, she was asked to make personalised gifts for friends and family, from which, Lenka's little gifts was created.

MITCHELL SIMONS

Designer & Creator

A somewhat silent member of the team, Mitchell has recently started to create and design his own products which will be available soon. From making tea, encouraging Ashley and fixing equipment his skills are invaluable to the running of Lenka's Little Gifts!

ISLA SIMONS

Inspiration

Meet the youngest member of the team- Isla!
After being born at just 24 weeks along with her twin sister, Esme, we knew that Isla was destined to change the world. 
After inspiring her mum, Ashley, to set up Isla's Journey, it was only fitting to continue the journey with Lenka's Little Gifts.
