Lucy Tonkin – grew up in the Lake District but was lured away by the bright lights of the city and moved to London for a few years. She then headed off to Australia travelling and ended up living in Sydney for 8 years, enjoying the beach lifestyle. Eventually, realising that she really missed the vibrant shade of green that you get in countryside where it rains for most of the year, she returned to Cumbria.
She has extensive “back office” experience from a variety of roles including over 10 years in advertising account management in London and Sydney, 3 years trust fundraising at The Outward Bound Trust and other general administrative positions.
Outside of work her main interests are her two dogs, knitting, various other crafts and supporting her football team Manchester City.
