I joined the Board of Trustees in May 2014. My sister, Anna, has been a service user of the Trust for more than 20 years. She now lives independently in a flat in Jasmine House with the support of the CSS. My father was a Trustee some years ago, so you can see I have a long history with the Trust. My working life has been as a farmer, running the family farm near Deal in the far East of Kent and because of this experience I have been named as lead Trustee for the Rare Breeds Centre.
