Bex’s Social Presence
This site, which has existed in various forms since 1997, contains a mix of personal and professional material, including blogs, CV, interests, wishlist, and all sorts – as a polymath (sometimes known as a Renaissance Woman), I certainly have a wide range of interests.
I have a diverse social presence, including Facebook, Twitter, amongst a wide range of other social networking sites. If you’re looking for a short bio and photo, check the press section. If you need to contact me – fill in a simple form.
I have a number of charities that I seek to support, including Tearfund, Trussell Trust, LICC, Refugee Action, Alzheimer’s Research UK, Natalie Collins, Macmillan, Breast Cancer Care, NSPCC, Livability, Mind, Christians Against Poverty, Greenbelt Angels, SIM, Embrace the Middle East (also via Give as You Live), Church and Media Network, SumofUs, Girlguiding, micro-loans with Kiva, and sponsoring events that friends are involved in. I’m also a member of The Ramblers, and would like to look for ways to support Maggies and The Christie.
