Trustees’ Week: 4 -8 November 2019

Some of our Trustees at our Practitioners’ Conference on 5th November (from left to right: Neil McLennan, Malcolm Noble, Colin Cook, and James Robertson.)

This Trustees’ Week, we want to acknowledge the essential work of our Trustees in volunteering their time and expertise for RCET.

We are really lucky that our trustees often go above and beyond for us. Chairman Malcolm Noble and Director Neil McLennan have taken part in challenge events including the Dundee Kiltwalk, the Forth Rail Abseil and Malcolm’s own 90 mile walking challenge into Rome raising hundreds of pounds in the process.

Many of our trustees also travel long distances to attend meetings, some coming as far as the south of England.

We are lucky to be able to call on the wide range of experience and skills of our trustees to help us improve the lives of Armed Forces young people and children.

This year we have been very fortunate to welcome four new trustees to the charity who have brought their unique skills and experience to the board.
