Upmo Kiltwalk Spotlight | Claire

Claire Turnbull.jpg

I have been involved with Upmo since it started as my brother is a student here, and then for a time, I was on the Board of Trustees.  I have worked as Head of Planning since last October. 

I am always happy to be involved in fundraising for Upmo, as we need large sums of money to develop our future plans and to keep delivering a quality service for the students who attend. 

I am passionate about the work we do; I witness every day the happy faces of our students, and how proud they are to be learning new skills and growing in confidence. 

My favourite thing is the banter with all the students, and working as part of a great team.

I have a dream of living in a farm cottage with pigs, goats and a Highland coo for company! 

I love my garden, spending time with my family and friends, and eating & drinking!  But my favourite pastime is definitely going on holiday – my latest trip is New York next week!

I am sure it will be fine on Sunday but we are taking the dog so as long as she manages it, we will!
