Christine (Hathaway) Phillips – (18th March 2021)
Christine Phillips has so much going on in her life this interview takes you in all sorts of directions.
Here’s just a taster of things we talk about – being adopted by wonderful parents and finding her birth mother many years later. Working in a petrol station when it was robbed; working in a haunted hotel; wearing her mortgage payment (fur coat); Pauline’s Dance School in Yeadon; karate in Greenacre Hall in Rawdon; Crag Wood Church; Catholicism and being a veterinary nurse.
Hear how Christine manages the complex condition of fibromyalgia – she is a strong lady!
She tells us why she voted to leave Europe and her views on Brexit. This interview is full of entertainment and life.
