I'm Simon, Co-founder and Chairperson of Annabel's Angels.
Being the Chair of a local charity is no easy task, particularly while working full time and being father to a grown up daughter and two young boys. I chair our bi-monthly trustee meetings and work closely with the Treasurer and Secretary to ensure the smooth running of the charity. I act as the main contact and figure head for Annabel's Angels, regularly representing the charity at meetings and in the media. I'm often the link between grant applicants and the trustee grant panel committee. I also assist with some of the charity's social media work.
Seeing the charity form and grow over the last five years from a simple idea to a registered charitable trust today has been most enjoyable. We've made many new friends along the way and I'm proud of what we've achieved so far. We have supported many families and helped to make a positive difference to their quality of life. However, there is still much more to do and more people, more families to reach.
