Taking on the role of a trustee
As a trustees of SYCF, it’s about being there to support our excellent staff team, and offering challenge and scrutiny and asking those difficult questions so we can reassure ourselves that the organisation is as efficient and effective as possible.It’s a hugely rewarding role and I feel incredibly proud to be part of a committed hard-working team who want to make a difference in all communities across South Yorkshire.
A love for South Yorkshire life
I love living and working in South Yorkshire. Without doubt, the warmth of the people along with beautiful towns and cities and amazing countryside is what makes this part of the world so special.There isn’t much spare time in my role, but when I do get away from work, I enjoy all sports, music, travelling by bus and train, gigs and bingo. Ideally, a day that combines the seaside, a good bus or train ride, a castle and a lovely bracing walk would be my perfect day.
