Hi, my name is Gillian Bandaranaike, but I prefer to be called Gill. I am a mature student and I live near Peterborough with my husband. I have two sons who are both at university; Alex is 21 and studying business at Manchester University and Daniel is 18 and studying sports marketing at Leeds University. My poor husband is tearing his hair out with three students to support.
