Dorset but I'm from Scotland


Where are you from:

Two Truths One Lie:

I have skied in the oldest and longest downhill race in the world.
Some of my best friends are Gunners.
I'm married to someone who was once a TV game show host.

What Would you like to get out of the Ski Week:

I'm looking forward to meeting the Veterans and helping them.

I call myself 'semi-retired' but I still seem to work 6 days a week! - I spent 9 years in the Army (A and SH), then 18 years in the drinks industry and the last 15 years in the yachting industry; I now work 2 days a week fundraising for a local charity, running a holiday cottage, and acting as a consultant to businesses and individuals.
I have been raising money for the Ski Week through networking and advertising the role of SWV in their work with Veterans.

A little about myself.
