Why he’s a Trustee:
“I had recently finished in my role as a governor for Shrewsbury College which meant I had some time to spare and was made aware of the opportunity with Shrewsbury Town in the Community. Seeing the huge number of people who benefit and could benefit from the work the charity does, I felt that it was a great cause to help.”
Why he is beneficial as a Trustee:
“As the Trust is growing quickly my experience will help steer the trust through the growing pains that organisations face, and help them implement financial systems that suit. Through my business contacts I can help to raise the profile of the Trust and increase awareness bringing benefits to those in our community who need the support most.”
