INTERESTS AND ACTIVITIES
I am a professional artist, so nearly all of my leisure time is devoted to some aspect of creating or practicing my various arts forms. I play piano, guitar, sing, writing songs and poetry. I currently have a play being considered for funding by the Arts Council of England. I have written several different circus productions for community groups and corporate clients. I am also painting a community mural in Chapeltown with the local young people.
I have been involved in work with children and community development for over twenty years, sitting on many local and national committees and also taking part and contributing to many different initiatives
In recent years I have concentrated on co-operative education and community development work supporting our inner city communities in various ways. I am a tenant member of Tangram Housing Coop, currently convening the Treasury Group. I am also governor responsible for special educational needs (SEN) at Bracken Edge Primary School and I am also helping coordinate the fundraising for the Bracken Edge Arts Centre.
I have fundraised over £800K for various organisations over the last twenty years. In the last three years I have fundraised over £150K for Leeds Childrens Circus. In 1999 I fundraised and managed a grant of £128K from the local government office – single regeneration budget (SRB3).
