Takeover 2019 - Dany Cotton, Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade Woman's Hour

Dany Cotton says, 'I was thrilled to take part in this year’s Takeover and talk about topics I’m passionate about - I have managed to include something tasty, something fluffy and something serious! I will be explaining to the listeners the benefits of therapy dogs and why I will be getting one for London Fire Brigade. I also wanted to talk about an issue I have seen throughout my 32 year career – mental health and how it can affect first responders. I love cooking and I’m sure I was a mouse in a previous life, so I will also be talking about the looming Halloumi shortage.'
