Lucinda is the newest member of Team FM.
An Apprentice from The Juice Academy and originally from Bath, Lucinda is an adopted Manc, living in Ashton.
She’s a welcome member of the team, supporting the Sales and Marketing team helping us to raise more money to help local people doing extraordinary things together.
Part of Lucinda’s initiation was to answer our Would You Rather questions for our fanzine this month. Take a look at her answers…
Q: What is your job title at Forever Manchester and what does it entail?
I’m the Social Media Exec, so I basically get to spout about all the great things that Forever Manchester does all day long and try to get you lovely lot to talk to us!
Q: What do you love about Forever Manchester?
The sheer amount of brew making that goes on – the team should buy shares in Yorkshire Tea! (Ed. Yorkshire!? Eh? Proud Mancs!)
Q: What makes Manchester unique to you?
The first time I ever visited, I was lugging a suitcase up some stairs in Piccadilly station and someone offered to help. I guess it’s not that spectacular, but it was something that I wasn’t used to. You can find that sort of selfless kindness in all forms all over Manchester.
Now onto the serious questions. Lucinda, would you rather…
Q. Fight a shark on land or a tiger in water?
Shark on land – trying to punch something in water is really hard work!
Q: Smell like Boddingtons, or cry Vimto tears?
Vimto tears – would brighten up any sad situation.
Q: Have legs as long as your fingers, or fingers as long as your legs?
Y’know that annoying thing when you need to turn off your light but you’re tucked up in bed already? Fingers as long as my legs, for sure.
Q: Have to run up the stairs of Beetham Tower twice a day for a year or down a pint of the ship canal once?
Ship canal pint, I would collapse running up those stairs in one go.
Q: Have to swim everywhere or listen to Nickelback for 12 hours a day for the rest of your life?
Swim everywhere… given there’s no tigers in the water.
Q: Have a Scouse accent for a day or wear a City shirt for a week?
Paul [FM’s Sales and Marketing Director] wouldn’t talk to me at work if I wore a City shirt… better have a Scouse accent.
Q: Walk everywhere like Liam Gallagher or dance everywhere like Bez?
Walk like Liam. I don’t think you’d travel very fast dancing everywhere like Bez.
Q: Win the lottery or live twice as long?
Win the lottery.
Q: Lick the floor in Piccadilly Wetherspoons or eat a Piccadilly pigeon?
Piccadilly pigeons. They’re fed on a diet of Gregg’s… it can only enhance the flavour.
