Sandie joined RAD in March 2004 to set up the Wheels to Work scheme in Derbyshire. Much of Sandie's time over the years has been spent securing funding to keep this fantastic project going. Thanks to her hard work the project has gone from strength to strength and due to its continued success is now on a much more secure (although not permanent) footing. Sandie leads of team of 4 other Wheels to Work staff providing mopeds for people throughout Derbyshire and also into parts of County Durham. She says, "I was drawn to the job setting up Wheels to Work as I know from experience how difficult it is for young people to get around independently in rural areas. I spent a good many years as a free taxi service for my 3 sons!"

When not working Sandie likes being outdoors gardening and walking. Indoors she enjoys sewing, decorating, reading and listening to music. She's an avid footy fan supporting Derby County AND Burton Albion, going to games when she gets the chance or watching them on the telly. 

Her 3 sons are all grown up now, but she enjoys spending time with her young grandson.
