“I love to travel and explore new places. I also love to run and have completed a number of half marathons. Planning to run the GNR for the first time in 2022 for the Children’s Foundation. Cooking is a passion of mine and I like to try cooking new cuisines. I think my love of cooking comes from travel but also the fantastic restaurants in the North East. I am a member of a church where I volunteer as a youth leader. I also help lead on activity camps during the summer in the Scottish Highlands.”
