Small Business and Charity Services


What do you do at Dafferns?
I am Dafferns’ longest serving member of staff, having joined the firm from school nearly 45 years ago. I mainly look after small limited companies, partnerships and sole traders.

What are your hobbies and interests?
Outside of work my interests include walking, sport (watching mainly), but I do play golf whenever I can. I often play golf abroad and like a glass of red wine. I also enjoy listening to music from the 60s and 70s (Pink Floyd, Genesis, Led Zeppelin) and have a considerable vinyl collection.

Have you got a special skill or hidden talent?
Juggling, sarcasm and humour.


I specialise in small charities and Solicitors Accounts Rules assignments. Being in the industry for over 40 years, I have a breadth of expertise covering a wide range of subjects, whilst attending to clients’ needs and providing an excellent service.
