Laura Barr - Administrator
Laura was born and grew up in Edinburgh and during her years at high school played the Clarinet. She then found a huge passion for sport, playing Curling – going on to compete in many Scottish, European and Worldwide events – she even had the honour of representing Scotland at the World Junior Curling Championships in South Korea winning a silver medal!
Alongside her curling she worked as an administrator for five years and thereafter went on to start a degree in Primary Teaching at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh. After a couple of years studying Laura returned to administration and is really excited to be working for an organisation that helps and inspires so many children and young people.
