Making quick work of everything, Lynne has an endearing no nonsense approach to work and life, making her your ideal go-to buddy for whatever you need done. No surprises her former careers were in accountancy, insurance and sponsorship; but her greatest passions are reserved for making tangible, caring differences for others.

Hilary Salisbury

Content Administrator

Hilary is our checker-queen. She has heaps of experience from running her own web sales based business for 9 years, which naturally comes with a strong knowledge of IT as well as that keen eye for detail. Hilary works behind the scenes to ensure the website is kept up to date and accurate … no small task.

Sam White


You can’t get Sam out of good restaurants, or a kitchen; she just loves fine dining. We think it comes from working too long for the likes of Harrods, Fortnum & Mason and Coworth Park – not that we’re complaining, because what Sam doesn’t know about fine dining, it’s not worth knowing!
