This week Demelza are celebrating the wonderful contributions made by our Trustees and would like to extend our gratitude for all they do. In recognition of the week, CEO, Lavinia Jarrett shares her thanks to all our Trustees for their support of Demelza.
"Having spent 20+ years at Demelza, I truly understand and appreciate the value of Charity Trustees. I have learnt a lot from each and every one and have received fantastic support over the years. Trustees have a huge responsibility with the governance of a charitable organisation and Demelza would not be in the position it is in today, providing a whole range of expert services to hundreds of babies, children and young people and their whole families, if we had not received such incredible stewardship and encouragement over the years.
Demelza Trustees serve a 3 year term of office and can serve 2 terms.
We have a broad array of expertise available from our existing Trustees and great support from many previous Trustees in lot of different ways, including our Vice Presidents. With the launch of our 2022-2027 Strategy and to ensure we continue with that enormous wealth of support, we have recently recruited a further 7 Trustees who each bring a wealth of knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise to the Demelza Team - welcome Alex Parry Jones, Richard Finn, George Hunter, Natasha Smith, Dr Vinit Shah, Richard Douglas, Paul Hewish."
This week Demelza has been introducing each one of our 18 amazing Trustees on LinkedIn. Check it out here!
