Out of Office

Mandy gives us another South West outpost with her return home to the North Cornwall coast with her two daughters and loopy puppy.

Mandy is studying part-time for an MSc in International Development, which combines her passion for people with a love of travel. This was inspired by a trip to Lebanon with Richard in 2018, which grew into a project working with the Palestinian refugee community.

Mandy also volunteers her time to support women. Recent projects include a photo-journalism exhibition in collaboration with female economic migrants from Guinea Bissau in West Africa and She’s Worth It, a money skills workshop for women experiencing economic abuse.
