Beth worked as a bar person whilst doing a Business Studies degree at the Polytechnic of Wales.  On completion, she moved to Bristol to work in a busy pub and restaurant, remaining in the trade until 1999.  Beth is now a self-employed podiatrist but still has many links with the trade through family and friends.  She says: “Working in the drinks industry stood me in good stead, so volunteering allows me to give something back whilst channeling my genuine interest in people and their welfare.”
