Alison joined Penllergare in November 2015. She has worked in finance for the previous eight years, after moving-on from a career in marketing. She worked for two charities before joining Penllergare, and enjoys working in the charity sector and feeling that she is doing something worthwhile. She says she loves working in the setting of the woods, with all the friendly staff and volunteers. Alison spends most of her leisure time looking after the horses and other animals on her smallholding.
