Hannah Grain - Boppin’ EA

Hannah has been working with Boppin' Bunnies for five years and runs the head office with Anna and Claire. Before that she was a Boppin' Bunnies customer with her two boys, Robert and William. She is on hand while they are at school. She has 18 years experience of working in offices and is a born organiser.

Hannah loves listening to music but is not so good at playing it, so she leaves that to our talented musicians. She keeps us all organised brilliantly with her awesome administrative skills.

“Claire has so much energy and engages with all of the children, my little boy is fascinated by her!”
