The KEEN Trustees

by Kate Sankey

Having held almost every role KEEN has to offer, from volunteer to co-ordinator, I found myself keen to share my knowledge and experience so becoming a KEEN trustee seemed like great idea.

The KEEN trustees meet a couple of times a term to guide and support the co-ordinator in running the charity, as well as helping to shape its future. The board of trustees is a diverse group, made up of members of the local community who give their time for free. It brings together parents and volunteers as well other local professionals; all of whom bring a variety of skills which aid the running of KEEN. Every year the trustees attend our end of year celebration, the KEEN Olympics, to witness firsthand all the fun KEEN brings to local children with special needs!

For me being a KEEN trustee gives me the opportunity to give back to an organisation that has given me so much and I’m proud to be a part of such an amazing charity.
