Caroline Kenyon chose to lIve in Lincolnshire 20 years ago, where she has raised a family, made amazing friends and run her own business for 17 years.
She was born and raised in London, studying Languages and then Law at Cambridge University and qualified as a barrister.
She then decided to become a journalist in London, and spent five years as a magazine editor when she met her future husband, who was in the Army and then stationed in Lincolnshire. He was posted to Germany but they always knew that one day they would move back to Lincolnshire
Moving to Lincolnshire which produces 20% of Britain’s food inspired her first business, a PR agency specialising in the promotion of Lincolnshire produce and British food.
The banking crisis of 2008 meant she had to remodel her business in order for it to survive.
She is proud to have founded, in this great county, a business that has global reach. Her flagship project, an international photography award, attracts entries from 60 countries annually and receives global press coverage. It matters deeply to her to provide top quality jobs to her talented team, to use local suppliers where possible and to support charitable projects through business.
She actively supports several charities including Fine Cell Work, teaching needlepoint to prisoners, First Story, transforming young people’s lives through creative writing, and Action Against Hunger, working to end child hunger.
She is married to Charles, and has a step-daughter Charlotte who is a GP in the West Country and a son Henry, 20, a student in London.
Caroline has been involved with the Liberal Democrats for 25 years, now is the time to step up to the plate.
Inspired by her business experience, she has a transformational vision for Lincoln, a wonderful city with much to offer but great inequalities and deprivation too.
