Patricia Di-Tommaso

Administration Assistant

Tricia has many, too many to mention, years of administrative experience working in all sectors. Although she admits that all her report cards described her as “very easily distracted” we think this makes her an excellent multi-tasker!  Outside of work, she enjoys beachcombing, listening to vinyl and reading American crime and French classic fiction.  Her personal goals for this year are to create a stained glass window for her new home and to improve her poker playing skills.


Lesley Sherwood

Administration Assistant

Lesley joined the Poverty Alliance in June 2016 as a part time Administrative Assistant.  Her first job was as a shorthand typist in the circulation department at DC Thomson in Glasgow and her most recent employment was as an administrator with Cosgrove Care in Giffnock.   
Lesley completed a secretarial course in Langside College, Glasgow back when you learned how to use a Gestetner Machine for copying documents. Lesley spent 10 years living and working in Copenhagen and is really enjoying the arrival of Nordic noir to our television screens!
