I first joined Rossendale Hospice in 2017 and since then created new events in the valley including the popular Gin ‘n’ Trek. I am known within the team for coming up with new and unique ideas to capture people’s imagination and help ensure that collectively, we raise enough funds to keep the hospice running.  
When not at my desk I'm an avid hicker and love going on treks with friends.
