Favourite holiday spot:
I’m going to stick to my roots (as I’ve not holidayed much recently) and go for wee place in the West Coast of Scotland called Tayvallich. It’s an absolutely stunning place, with clear sparkling skies at night and delightful memories at every turn.
If you were given £50,000 tomorrow, how would you spend it?
I would definitely give my family money as they have been a lifetime of generous to me, take myself and my boyfriend away on a holiday and buy a large amount of stock from Northern Lights Interiors. I have my eye on a few chandeliers etc.
I’m pretty good at making cocktails, and playing the bass.
Where did you hear about the project?
I heard via Peter Neal when he was writing the the bid.
How long have you been volunteering at the school?
Since work first started, whenever I was free for a bit of happy volunteering graft!
What sort of work have you been doing at the school?
Painting, scraping, de-nailing, vacuming, sweeping, de- littering. Basically anything I was able to do to help. Tile scraping with Danielle being the highlight. It’s amazing to see them now!
Why do you volunteer?
Because I think volunteering is a wonderful thing to do. People have been so caring and welcoming ever since I moved to Saltburn last September and through volunteering it is one way for me to say thank you.
What do you enjoy about volunteering?
I enjoy the feeling you get when you see the outcome of your hard graft and the benefits, even if a little, it will bring to the project and the community.
