We are pleased to announce that Charlie Middleton has been elected as Chair of Trustees. Charlie has been a ChildHope trustee for almost five years and has extensive experience in the banking industry, working for more than 20 years for Barclays before joining Dutch ethical bank, Triodos, as Managing Director in 2003. He qualified as a Psychotherapist in 2013 and, having recently left Triodos, is now planning to do more counselling work.
'I am delighted to take on the role as Chair and play a part in helping some of the world's most marginalised children to thrive. 2016 marks the start of our new five year strategy and we have exciting and ambitious plans ahead. We will continue to work hand-in-hand with locally based organisations to ensure we truly meet the needs of children. We will focus our efforts on reaching those children who have insufficient support from families and communities and are often beyond the reach of other charities. I'm particularly excited about our plans to make significant steps to meet the needs of disabled children within our projects. This work is only possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters. I am humbled by the support and commitment shown by our donors and individuals who raise funds throughout the year. I look forward to updating you on our work and achievements and hope you can continue to support us in 2016.'
