Interests

Murray is married with three children and although they and their dog occupy most of his spare time, he is also a member St. Alkmund’s Church in Duffield and helps out with the sound system there.

He otherwise just tries to stay in one piece while raising money for charity, e.g. Robin Hood Half-Marathon, 106m cycle ride from Derby to Skegness and in one year completion of ‘100 not out!’ (the 75m Nottinghamshire Bike Ride in June and the 25m Chatsworth Challenge Walk in September).  He has recently raised money for the Derbyshire Churches and Chapels Trust by reaching 10 churches one morning during his cycling in the “Ride and Stride” event.

Murray has also previously been a Primary School Governor.
