Trustees and Management Committee

David Burdess - Trustee Chairman

"Creating the charity from a not-for-profit group in 2007, to achieving charity status in April 2011, has been a rewarding and challenging experience."

Mark Syred - Trustee Member

"Chestnut Community Events is a great local charity that I have been involved with for nine years: as a teacher, whose pupils benefitted from their very first Seed-to-Soup project; as a film maker, shooting Disability Awareness DVDs for them; and as a trustee, since they achieved charitable status in 2011."

Paul Singleton - Trustee Treasurer

"Using my business skills as a retired businessman to assist now as a volunteer keeps me involved in the community."

Jane Dodding - Trustee Secretary

"It's great to be able to visit sites and see everything we've discussed in meetings, and everything we've allocated our funding towards, coming to life."

David Beuzeval - Management Committee

"As an environmentalist the charity works hard at ground level to inspire the young and old to get out more, learn new skills, and develop the landscape in a positive way. I am delighted to offer my skills as a management advisor for the development of the charity."

Jan Quinn - Management Committee

"I am inspired everyday by our volunteers and organisations wanting to support the charity with their time and advice. Making a difference to children, young people and adults in their daily lives drives me to join together as a team to make the projects and the charity a success."

Lisa Thompson - Management Committee

"I enjoy being on the management committee as I believe in the ethos of the charity and how it supports young people and adults who are disadvantaged. Knowing how that feels growing up I am proud to be on the management committee for this local charity."

Dan Crossley - Management Committee

"Having worked with Chestnut Community Events since 2016, I have seen what excellent work the charity does with young people and adults in the community. I am pleased to have been invited to join the management committee, so that I can play a small part in helping to continue this work in the future."
