Posters with Gemma's face have gone on display at railways stations including Sheffield. They have also been spotted in Birmingham, and in London at Canary Wharf and various other underground stations.

"My family, partner, friends, friends of friends, work colleagues and even strangers have been amazing and supportive - that’s what overwhelms me the most and I can’t thank them all enough.”
