I joined DASH in 2019.  As a Durham resident since the age of 5, it is an opportunity to support my local community in a positive way.  I have enjoyed getting to know the staff and other Trustees and learning about the broad range of opportunities DASH offers.

My background as a Hospice Fundraiser will hopefully be useful to explore avenues of income to support the activities of DASH going forward.

As a newly appointed Registered Provider, there are exciting opportunities ahead for future development of DASH, expanding further the range of support available to local people in need.

There are exciting changes ahead for me too.  Having successfully run my own small soft furnishing business for the last 7 years,  I am about to embark upon a teacher training course.
