Ciaran Lines – Chip off the older blocks
So, we are not denying Ciaran a formal education! He studies at Carmel College in Darlington, but he’s also a very useful member of the Right Lines team. Ciaran undertakes plenty of junior administrative roles and he’s also been kept busy at many events which the company is involved in, delivering on the ground support at various running races and festivals. Ciaran is a very keen runner (with Sedgefield Harriers), so he’s hoping that spending time with the likes of Steve Cram will help him in his athletics development. Meanwhile, his presence already frequently helps us and adds some youthful energy and perspective to the team!
