Trustee - Volunteer Development
Ann's Volunteer Development role involves making sure the volunteers have what they need and get the support they need, and representing the volunteers in meetings with hospital Trust staff. Ann grew up in York, then worked for the NHS locally – including at York Hospital - mainly in the field of personnel/ HR. She left to create a very successful greetings card company with her husband David.
Judith's involvement with the Friends began in 2013. Judith started out by helping on the stroke wards as a Talking and Reading Service volunteer. Then she became a Trustee. Before joining the Friends Judith worked for BT for many years, (including in HR/ personnel), and also for the Leeds branch of the relationships support charity Relate, first as their Centre Manager, and then as their Company Secretary.
