Urmston Campaign Leader
Clio Toogood is leading the Liberal Democrats’ campaigning activities in Urmston. Growing up in a large, close-knit family in a busy household in Cheshire, instilled Clio with an understanding of compassion and civic-mindedness from an early age. Clio moved to Trafford in 2016 after graduating from the University of Leicester and works for a large finance company. She became involved in local politics last year and was inspired by the community work the Liberal Democrats were doing in Trafford. Clio is motivated by making our communities work better for everyone.
Aside from politics, Clio has a passion for running. In 2018 she challenged herself to run the Manchester Half Marathon, having not even made it round a parkrun at the start of the year. The atmosphere of enthusiasm and togetherness inspired her to join a local running club. The club has supported her and helped fuel her determination. Last year she was delighted to have completed her first Ultra and has entered this year’s Manchester Marathon, rescheduled for October, raising money for The Christie.
Clio is a member of LGBT+ Liberal Democrats and a passionate campaigner for equality. She is also a committee member for the LGBT+ network for her company, and works diligently to promote an inclusive working culture.
