Why he is a trustee at STITC:
“I love being able to help local people. The work that the Community team does is fantastic and if I can help to increase the impact of that I’m more than happy; it feels great to give something back.”
Why he is beneficial as a trustee at STITC:
“I think I have a flair for bringing people together and that collaboration can magnify the positive outcomes. I’m not afraid of a challenge and often encourage others to get involved too, pushing their own boundaries along the way. If these challenges or initiatives can raise money for such a worthwhile cause at the same time, everyone’s a winner.”
