I was delighted and honoured to become a trustee of Animal Rescue Cumbria in August 2017. I have been an investment manager with Brewin Dolphin for over 20 years. During this time I have managed investments for a number of charities in Cumbria and further afield. I hope to bring the experience gained in my professional career to further the good work at Animal Rescue Cumbria. Since joining as a trustee my household has become the very proud owner of a dachshund and can quite imagine life without a our four legged friend.
