Board of Trustees
Originally, our Board was made up entirely of parents whose children attended our service. Over time, the Board has diversified and now includes eight people from varying backgrounds (all volunteers) who work together to support our activities, manage our finances and influence the charity’s direction. Our Trustees are: Alison Brooks (Vice Chair), Becki Pointon, Carole Luckwell, Dave Nicholson, David Winnett, James Jones, Jenny Byrne, and Nic Jepson (Chair).
Our Patron and ambassadors
With new Patron, Richard Whitehead MBE https://youtu.be/6meGnJY3IHA our ambassadors now include Len Simmonds, Jackie Clark, Kryshia Ford-Wilson, Caroline Samworth, Lisa Fox, Dave Taylor, Ben Hicklin, Sally Radford, Becky Sutherland-Sheeran, Karen Richards, and Sarah Vearnals. All highly motivated, enthusiastic and articulate people able to share some of their knowledge, skills and specialist areas to further the development of Footprints CEC.
United through their involvement, ambassadors create positive change in the lives of children with motor disorders such as cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome, supporting their parents with the knowledge, confidence, and strength they need to understand and support their child’s additional needs.
They serve as a focal point and are a ‘knowledge and experience bank’ providing invaluable support to trustees.
In fact, ambassadors are the finest public relations tool we could have!
