What are your hobbies and interests?
I spend most of my weekends with my partner Dawn and my son William, we love to go out for walks, watch films and go out for meals. I am a keen pool player, Manchester United fan and fisherman (when I can fit them in). I also volunteer as a Forum officer for the North West Forum for Credit Unions in the North West of England.
What is your greatest passion?
Definitely my family, I am fortunate to have a fantastic support network from my Mother, Father and partner and of course my wonderful son but with this aside, it’s the Credit Union world, I love our ethos and ethics and I take great pride in delivering the best possible service, solution and outcome for our members.
What brings you most joy?
Family, Friends, laughter and going the extra mile for others in need.
If you had three wishes what would they be?
1, For me, my family and friends to remain happy and enjoy life.
2, Eradicate all poverty and confrontation in the world.
3, For every UK resident to realise the benefits and to join a Credit Union
Why do you think people should become members of the credit union?
There is no catch to becoming a credit union member, members can choose to have a say in the way a credit union operates and develops, we are safe, ethical and in my eyes a must.
