Welcome our new Trustee, Claire Sutherley!

We are delighted to announce that Claire Sutherley is the newest recruit to join the Board of Trustees. Claire, a determined fundraiser, will be a tremendous support to the charity as she has a wealth of business experience after running a successful family security business for 25 years. Claire now helps others to achieve their goals as SME Business Growth Manager at Wakefield Council.

Claire said, “I feel honoured to be the latest addition to the Community Foundation team and am looking forward to playing an active role in future support for those who need it the most within our district.”

David Dinmore, Chairman of Trustees for the charity said, “The Community Foundation Wakefield District continues its efforts to strengthen and diversify the membership of its Board of Trustees. I am thrilled that Claire Sutherley will be adding her experience and expertise to that of the current Board members. I welcome her wholeheartedly, as the Foundation expands and enhances its work to meet the needs of those suffering hardship in Wakefield and District, especially in the aftermath of the Covid pandemic.”
