I am a Trustee and work with both Nick and Maggie in relation to identifying and building business relationships with potential strategic partners. I have been with the Trust since February 2018. I am a former President of Strathmore RFC and as the Trust was growing, they were looking for quality candidates – I was invited due to my interest in rugby and developing people through rugby in the wider community.
I have been learning all the time, in relation to charity funding, reporting, safeguarding, compliance and the provision of activities. Especially the effort and commitment of the teams involved to deliver the projects to the wider community. Without a doubt the Autism-Friendly Rugby is the highlight, to see the children interacting is both a wonderful and humbling experience.
I have been associated with the Angus/Dundee business community for over 35 years. I am a solicitor and have a depth of contacts and an understanding how the local business community operates.
