Some great news to start the year, we’re delighted to announce the appointment of two new Trustees who will be joining the Gloucestershire Gateway Trust board from the start of 2023, so a huge welcome to Pip Levett and Monique Smith.
As former Director of Play at Play Gloucestershire, Pip has been working with Gloucestershire Gateway Trust as one of our community foundation partners since the very beginning of our partnership with Westmorland and the creation of Gloucester Services.
“I’m thrilled I’m going to become a Trustee of GGT. It is an incredible charity that is a force for good across Gloucestershire and truly believes in the power of people and communities. I’m looking forward to finding out more about the amazing projects that GGT funds and to use my skills and experience in community development to help them deliver the best possible outcomes for the people that need them most.”Pip Levett, Trustee
Also joining the GGT board as a Trustee is Monique Smith. Monique manages Gloucestershire’s careers service and has connected many people to the GEM Project and job opportunities at Gloucester Services.
Monique said: “I am really excited and honoured to join the GGT team as a trustee as l feel the work that is accomplished in the community has changed lives and has supported many people and organisations and charities. I am a Gloucester resident and have worked in advice and guidance for over 20 years and would now like to use my knowledge to help continue the good work that the trust do.”Monique Smith, Trustee
We know that Pip and Monique are going to be a wonderful addition to our team. Chief Executive of GGT Mark Gale summed it up:
“We are delighted that Monique and Pip will be joining our Board of Trustees. Together they bring a wide range of experience in play, learning and skills development from a community perspective. I am certain Pip and Monique will help keep improving the impact of our Trust’s work in these challenging times.”
