Number of years in the outdoor industry: I am new to the outdoor industry, having come from a conservation background.  I trained in Environmental Biology and then Forestry.  Since then I have worked for WWF UK and also businesses in the timber and paper industry on the responsible sourcing of timber and paper products from well managed forests.  I hope that this background and my love of outdoor activities will stand me in good stead in the outdoor industry!  I joined EOCA in January 2011.  

Favourite wild place: Any of the Lake District tarns, high up in the hills! Great places to enjoy dramatic scenery, swim and wild camp!
 
Favourite outdoor activity: Hill walking, camping, cycling, outdoor swimming and canoeing are all firm favorites!

Perfect day: This would have to be spending the day at a Lake District lake, canoeing, swimming and barbecuing with family and friends, surrounded by Lake District hills.
 
If you are an individual who loves the great outdoors and would like to support our projects, please click the donate button below. During 2017, all money donated will fund tree planting in Nepal as part of our 2 Million Tree Project.
Both the Breathe Foundation and the Atlantic Rainforest Institute would like to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank EOCA for its support of this project, and its ongoing support of projects like ours across the wide spectrum that it engages in.  Without the commitment and funding from the European outdoor industry ...to assist established or start-up initiatives, many would never make it off the ground... and this [particular]  project and its roll out may never have been possible.
