Location Leicester, England, United Kingdom
Introduction I've lived half my life in/around Glagow, where I was born and raised and where I first became involved in inter faith activities in my teens. I've lived the other half in/around Leicester. I'd like to think I combine good elements from north and south of the border! I've been working for Leicester Council of Faiths since June 2007.
