A Fund Farewell to three of our Trustees

December 20, 2017

At the Fund’s December Board of Trustees meeting, three of our Trustees retired from their position as Trustee of the Fund. All of them have been instrumental in the setting up of the Fund, and have provided us with guidance, support and encouragement throughout their time as Trustees.

We have been indebted to Stephen Dunmore OBE for his support and advice, particularly with regards to the Fund’s grant giving programme. We are very grateful that he has kindly agreed to continue to Chair the grant sub-committee over the course of the coming year.

Lizzie Kershaw has been invaluable in shaping the Fund’s communications strategy through our fledgling years, and has been a passionate member of the Ascot Fundraising Committee since its inception in 2015. Lizzie was an original member of The Prince’s Rural Action Programme, and has been a skilled participant at our annual clay shoot on several occasions.

Also a former member of The Prince’s Rural Action Programme, Sue Huggins OBE has generously provided the Fund with her unparalleled knowledge of rural issues and sound strategic advice. She has also contributed invaluably to the grant sub-committee, and we’re delighted that she has agreed to continue to consult us on rural affairs and on our new research, Recharging Rural.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Stephen, Lizzie, and Sue, for all their hard work and dedication over the past seven years.
