This week at BettingJobs, we are delighted to be celebrating Lesley McGill’s 6-year work anniversary!
Lesley joined our team in 2017 and is our dedicated finance manager. We spoke with Lesley to hear what she gets up to in her spare time and she also shares some interesting fun facts.
“In my spare time I like to swim, read books, go walking, sketching/painting, cycling and learning to grow veggies – let’s hope this year’s attempts are better!
You will find me out and about most weekends, pulling on my walking boots and exploring places of interests and forests or just local walks along beaches and in parks. This gives me the opportunity to do some sketching or painting if the notion takes me, I carry art supplies in my rucksack everywhere just in case.
In better weather the bike gets dusted off and strapped to the car and I go cycling, Glentress at Peebles is a favourite place to go let off some steam and have some fun or a more sedate ride along the canals to the Falkirk wheel and the Kelpies from Auchenstarry or local Ayrshire cycle routes.
💡Fun fact 1: I wanted to challenge myself after a very challenging couple of years in my life. So, I decided to participate in the last ever Pedal for Scotland Glasgow to Edinburgh ride in 2019, that was a great challenge for me, I thought I’d never get to the finishing line! But seeing how many people of all ages were taking part spurred me on and was well worth the effort. Now I try to do the local Pedal for Scotland Events in Ayrshire.
💡Fun fact 2: I’m a mother to 3 children and a grandmother to 5 grandchildren.”
Thank you for everything you do for the team Lesley, we are so glad to have you onboard!
