Tell us about your role and volunteering experience at Radio Horton:

I am currently responsible for overseeing Radio Horton’s partnerships with local care homes.

Previously, I was joint secretary and support the committee along with Sharon who shares the role with me.

I also help at outside events, which is fun!

I love most jazz. I remember being captivated
seeing Stan Tracy and Art Theman playing at a
village venue in the early 90’s. It was so
unexpected; and Norma Winston at the Oxford
Jazz Festival in 2011 with Klause Gesing and
Glauco Venier. Sublime!
