Goodbye to long serving Trustees and a big welcome to our new Board members

22nd March 2021

We would like to say goodbye to our Trustees Adam Naylor and Cath Giel who have completed their nine years on the Cumbria Community Foundation board. During their time that have played a vital role in the Foundation’s work. We would like to say a massive thank you for their hard work and continuous support.

Cath who is also chair of our West Cumbria Grants Panel said: “Thank you to the Foundation team for the work they do in support of our communities and for the support I have received during my tenure. They have always been responsive and are a pleasure to deal with.”

We’d like to welcome two new members to the Foundation board, Adam Hearnden and Alex Scott. Alex said: “I’ve seen the Foundation grow from its inception and have always been impressed by everything I’ve witnessed. I’ve spent much of my professional career away from Cumbria but have always known my roots are here. This is a special place with distinctive characteristics and I hope I can make a valuable contribution to the work of the Foundation.”
