Treasurer: Clive Stubbings

I was born in London but have been resident in Manchester for over 20 years now.  I married a local girl and I love it here.

I have spent the last thirty-something years in the IT industry but my first love are the Arts, especially Music and Theatre.  As well as the joy they bring and their window on what it is to be human, they have a transformative power in the hands of organisations such as OTW which I have been very impressed with over the last few years that I have known and been involved in their work.
