Andrea Coleman's Additional Information

Interests

I enjoy lots of outdoor activities such as horse-riding and walking. I also do a number of fundraising events for various charities throughout the year. I enjoy spending time with my five year old nephew and taking him to adventure parks. I have also helped a local family with the care of their wonderful daughter who has special needs. I help in the mornings getting her ready for school administrating medication and getting her dressed for school. I also take her out at the weekends for herself and her family to get a break.
