Meet The Team

The Bristol Pound has been developed on an almost entirely voluntary basis by a growing team of people including:

Katie Finnegan-Clarke

Communications Manager

Katie keeps an eye on, and coordinates, what's being communicated from the Bristol Pound ship. She enjoys regularly emailing, tweeting, meeting, phoning and occassionally sending a good old fashioned letter to the Bristol Pound membership. She is also the first point of contact for the press, runs and designs campaigns and organises Bristol Pound events.

Katie is proud to be from Bristol. She caught the campaigning bug after coordinating a Bristol-wide schools walk out over the Iraq war, age 14.
