We are sad to announce that Elliot has stepped down as Chair of Trustees after 4 years service but congratulate him on his new roles as Chair of the Refugee Charities Network and Coordinator of the UK Aid Hub project.
Elliot has been involved with CamCRAG from the start and has taken on a number of roles, including organising logistics and donations shipments, and will continue to support CamCRAG as an active and enthusiastic volunteer.
Every cloud has a silver lining and we are pleased to announce that Marissa was elected to be our new Chair of Trustees, Many of you will already know Marissa, who has served on our Executive Committee as Giving and Online Fundraising Coordinator. She is a charity professional and maintains the focus and calm good grace of her predecessor – which should keep the Trustees on track. We expect to confirm at the next meeting that we also have a new trustee, who will bring lived experience as a refugee and an alternative perspective to the Board. We will be organising a thank-you party for Elliot very soon. Volunteers, look out for an email from Gini about this.
