  1. Hi Barney.
    Kate here, hope all i
    s going well, this isn't really a social message but one from work. Do you have the time to jot down in no more than 150 words, your journey since leaving uni. We are putting together a newsletter for mentors and would like to give a flavour of where some graduates go. if you talked about Raleigh that would be fantastic!!
    have a great time, I wish I was there
    Kate Thackeray :-) xx
