In retirement, still working after twenty years as volunteer business advisor and past treasurer with Emmaus Leeds, a homeless charity, for some years supporting Liza. Also, now Chair of Governors with a highly successful Leeds primary school. I encourage and take delight in the achievement of people of all ages.
Interests: Learning, technology, enterprises, photography, guitar, science, economics, politics, the universe.
I joined Trust Leeds because I hope to support many new local businesses as I am particularly interested in entrepreneurship and everything that’s business related.
I believe that small actions are the catalyst for positive change and I see micro-finance as an impactful way to empower women and create more opportunities whilst reducing the economic and social gap in our society. I also believe that financial independence is a synonym for freedom, therefore everyone should be able to have the tools and equal opportunities to achieve that.
Trust Leeds is for me a source of continuous inspiration and I hope my skills and passion will help make a difference in our community.
