About Butler SCR

Our Exec for 2018-19

Anne Murphy (President)

Anne is a community mentor. Anne loves painting and travelling and started mentoring as an ‘antidote’ to her day job. Anne loves Durham and the north East and her son is a Durham graduate.

Mark Bell (Treasurer)

At Durham I was a student at the College of St Hild and St Bede and studied Education gaining a BA (Hons) Education in 2000. My employment history is varied, from Education and retail sales through to mid management and Leisure & Tourism.

Currently I work at Durham Amateur Rowing Club where my time is split between managing the facilities, inc. social and conference bookings and working in the Study Support Centre based at the club. The study support centre works with children from age 5 to 18 from a wide variety of backgrounds and needs, where we use sport (in particular rowing) as a tool to increase their Numeracy, Literacy, ICT and self esteem.

My own sports background as you might guess is Rowing and I have been a member or DARC from the age of 11 and rowing forms a large part of my life, although I have not competed in recent years. I have been involved with Josephine Butler College SCR for a number of years now, and am also a College Mentor.
