What attracted you to being a trustee at Lankelly Chase?

I was attracted by the team, the approach and the money to be honest. Having a bank account with £100m+ in it, an excellent staff/trustee board and a rare level of insight into how social change happens and what a foundation’s role should be in that really got me excited.

Lankelly Chase understands that understanding the communities you wish to serve is the most critical part of putting yourself into a position from which you can be helpful.

I have insight of running social sector organisations so hope I can be helpful in looking at grants in terms of budgeting for ambition.

I run a philanthropy consultancy firm, a photo framing business and an education social enterprise. I also sit on the board of the Early Intervention Foundation, which I think will become the most important organisation of the next 10 years if people get behind it.
