“I joined the Street Fit Scotland board in March 2020, just before we went into lockdown. I am a solicitor with an international law firm, specialising in intellectual property and sports law. I regularly provide pro bono legal advice to a variety of Scottish charities and I am keen to use my legal skills to give something back to the wider community. Since joining the Board, I have assisted with a variety of areas including helping the charity redraft several of its policies, revising the charity’s constitution and assisted the charity with entering into other legal agreements.
Upon hearing about the fantastic work done by Street Fit Scotland, I was keen to use my legal and associated skillset to do what I can to help the charity grow, meet (and exceed) its objectives and most of all improve the lives of the participants for whom the charity is so important.”
