In my spare time I work with Washington Mind to deliver courses and empower people to make  better financial choices, this is important to help people  build confidence  & resilience as none of us ever know what is round the corner, I'm also a Volunteer at Washington Millennium Centre.

For May 2019 – May 2021 I have had the privilege of serving The city of Sunderland as Mayor , raising funds for Veterans in Crisis Sunderland and Washington Mind, I would like to thank everyone who helped me in my fundraising efforts.
