About the Trust
I am a retired Principal Lecturer in Modern Languages at the University of Northumbria. My career has been in secondary and higher education in North-East England. I work now as a military author and act as an examination consultant at the Institute of Linguists, London. I am a long-term volunteer for my local Church lunch club and a fundraiser for Christian Aid and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
I am a great supporter of South Tyneside District Hospital following successful cancer treatment there in 2004. I feel passionate about our Borough and our community and want to contribute as much as I can to the welfare and prosperity of South Tyneside.
