Alexander Residence on the Radio #goodwork

Doing radio was on my list of things I really wanted to do in life. Last week I got to help spread the #goodwork Comic Relief has been doing over the last 25 years by reporting on my impressions of projects in Ghana.

Thanks for having me BBC Radio Nottingham, (three times) and Woman’s Hour, I would love to come back anytime!

On Woman’s Hour live from a vaccine centre in Ghana (12 minutes in)

On BBC Radio Nottingham on my return talking to Mark Dennison  (54mins in)

Having a google hangout with Mumsnet
