Name: Christine Costello
What your role at the BHP entails:
As Retail Manager based at the Community Shop, my role involves helping customers at the shop, generating income through sales; sorting stock; looking after staff and volunteers and guiding them to reach their potential.
Favourite film and why:
The Green Mile; I just think it’s a great story.
Favourite book and why:
anything by James Paterson.
Favourite album and why:
anything by Led Zeppelin.
Hobbies and interests:
I enjoy walking, especially in the Lake District and Wales. I have just started taking ballroom Dancing lessons at Old Swan dance school.
Person you most admire and why:
the person I most admire is my late father. He taught me all the important values-to be generous with our time and to choose to be happy. He also instilled into us how important it is to look after family ties, and as a result all of us are still really close.
I believe it is so important to ‘Learn to Listen.’ It’s something I try and make a point of doing as much as I can.
I finally learned to swim last year.
