Four New Trustees Joining Our Board

1st September 16

We are delighted that four new trustees are joining our board.

They bring with them a wealth of wide ranging skills and experience that will drive forward the organisation during a time when an increasing elderly population is predicted to place increased pressure and stress on the lives of unpaid family carers.

The new trustees are:

Alison Griffiths, who brings vast financial and professional expertise spanning 30 years to the board.  Alison, a chartered accountant and member of the Institute of Taxation, was a Director of Taxation in international FTSE 100 groups, working on worldwide tax affairs and Board governance.  She is also a Trustee of Pinpoint and Cambridgeshire Community Foundation.

Beverley Howard has worked in the voluntary sector for 12 years and was formerly CEO of Rural Cambs Citizens Advice Bureau. She has also worked as a business consultant and has an extensive knowledge of HR and management practices.

Matthew Lester, a Director of Maxine Lester Residential Lettings, spent 10 years as Operations Director for the disability charity Papworth Trust where he was responsible for service delivery across the Eastern region by its 200 staff. Prior to this Matthew was Managing Director of a national facilities services contractor to the health and education sectors, where he worked for 12 years.

Rhiannon Sarginson has vast commercial, business development and charity sector experience, having worked in charity project management and transformation.
