What do you like about being a trustee?
I like the variety of the role – there are so many things that come up and it’s never boring! Most of all, I like knowing that everything I do, every decision I’m involved in, is ultimately helping someone with CP to get involved in sport and to build confidence. That means so much to me.
What do you hope to achieve as a trustee in the future?
I want to help the charity to grow and thrive so that we can help as many people, and families, as possible. I’d love CP Sport to be a name everyone knows, just like Scope or Oxfam!
What does Cerebral Palsy Sport mean to you?
So much! I absolutely love my Trustee Role and it’s now an important aspect of my working life.
