In his spare time, Jamie loves nothing more than being in the great outdoors exploring new places with his little white dog, that nine times out of ten will come back all different shades of mud. If he's not travelling around the world then his head will be firmly stuck in a travel journal or magazine planning his next trip away.

Guy Kirk-Lynch

Sales & Marketing Executive

Guy joined us in August 2018, having worked for 2 years in pubs and restaurants creating skills that will help him through life, he definitely prefers things this side of the bar though.

Now working as our Sales and Marketing Executive, Guy hopes to bring the knowledge gained from his degree in Management and Marketing to help grow the Lets for Life brand and gain awareness of the housing needs for people with Learning Disabilities.

Guy doesn't just like sitting in all the time, an actively sporty individual, playing football during the week (saving the goals not scoring them) and spending time with family and friends.
