6. Tell us a little about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time?
Kit I’m passionate about music, travel and fitness. I like to go to concerts when I have spare time but, given the current climate, I haven’t been to any this year. During the lockdown, I became a run-addict. This is motivating me to plan and train for a half-marathon through which I can raise money for dementia research. Lawrence I enjoy gardening; growing my own vegetables as well as cooking and eating them! I like cycling and running and have recently also started kayaking in the Grand Union Canal and the Thames. I like to go out to eat and socialise as well and look forward to being able to go to the theatre and concerts again!
