LIFTE Research

Farewell LIFTE friends…

Earlier this month, the LIFTE Project’s volunteer research programme came to an end after eight very busy weeks for all its participants, both its co-ordinators Sarah Jane Gibbon, Anne Mitchell, Julie Gibson, Wanda Machin, Sigurd Towrie and Jen Harland, and the many volunteers who took part.
