Why are you a trustee at STITC?

“I was pleased to learn of the activities of the Trust, and to be invited to join it in order to support and contribute to the range of work that they undertake to improve the lives of people in the local community, including those who are less advantaged.”

Why are you beneficial as a trustee at STITC and what expertise do you bring?

“I hope that my experience in education and sport over the last 39 years has given me some insight into the development of programmes and initiatives that have a positive impact on the lives of children, young people and adults, and the wider communities in which they live. I look forward to working with the trustees to promote positive activities that will help all of those involved to reach their potential, contribute to their local communities and to grow together. “
