It’s Trustee Week and Slough CVS is so grateful for the Trustees that we have, some of whom have been with us for over ten years. During the pandemic they were never more needed or relied on. Our Trustees have stepped up, supported staff and used their skills and expertise — a huge thank you to them!
Our Chairman Jamie Green used his skills to co-chair the OneSlough Community Response along with Ramesh, our CEO and Ketan, Service Lead, Slough Borough Council. His knowledge of Slough was invaluable in establishing partnerships with the voluntary, statutory, and business sectors.
Vice Chair, Janine Edwards brought her HR and safeguarding skills to the organisation. Always a friendly voice at the end of the phone, she has provided support, positivity, and a reassuring presence during the pandemic.
As always, Alan Bevan’s expertise as our trusted Treasurer was essential. During the ten years as a Slough CVS Trustee, he has seen the charity change and develop and having that knowledge to call upon has been a valuable asset.
Ambily Banerjee, our newest Trustee, comes from a business background. She worked with the Communications team helping to create a video newsletter to appeal to a wider audience and increase Slough CVS’s reach on our social media platforms.
Gautam Saraogi’s business acumen guided the organisation when it came to fundraising. His knowledge of the sector and contacts was especially beneficial to the organisation.
Over the years, Mike Connolly has provided insights into the health and social care sector which were especially useful during the pandemic as the whole team had to react quickly to an ever-changing world.
Trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work. Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
