Lawrence spent many years working in retail before making the switch to youth work in 2007, when he was hired by ‘London Youth’. there he worked as a general sports coach, taking on football, handball or whatever took his fancy! LYR spotted his talent for engaging young people and recruited him to work as an outreach coach in 2012. Having never rowed before, Lawrence had to learn on the job and has tackled the challenge head on.
Outside of work, Lawrence takes pride in cooking up a storm, and can also be spotted regularly ‘busting a move’ at London’s, Ministry of Sound.
