Aside from Kirstie's challenging role for Lloyds where she is one of 10 Wealth IFAs with a patch that stretches from Beverley to Barrow in Furnesss and up to Edinburgh, she is amazingly generous with her time and efforts towards the Scout Group.
She really believes in the work that the leaders do with the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and the impact that teaching the children life stills, discipline, responsibility and respect should have on the community. On asking her why she puts so much of her personal time into these efforts she stated 'I feel that when the money has been raised and the new building is in place, it will be an achievement that is tangible. It is something for our community that is lasting and can act as a hub not only for the Scouting movement but also other groups in the areas and I will be proud that I have been a significant part of that. The work that the leaders do to give the children a focus is truly wonderful and I would love for them to be able to help more children from all backgrounds. The impact that Scouts has had on my daughter Kate is great and she could cook a full Sunday Dinner by the age of 9!'
I know that getting the opportunity to carry the Olympic Torch would be a huge honour and acknowledgement of Kirstie's efforts and one that I feel is fitting. CR
