I joined the Lion Club shortly after my wife bought a business in Budleigh, as we both wanted to be part of the community spirit the town is known for. We have both worked in Retail for our entire career. For me the last 10yrs has been focused on the Charity Retail sector, firstly with Hospiscare in East Devon and for the last 6yrs, working for Barnardo’s as a Retail Area Manager in the South West.
