The Trust also expressed its sincere thanks to Paul Wooley from bira, who recently resigned from the Board, as well as Leigh Baildham, who joined following the merger with the Pottery & Glass Trades Benevolent Fund in 2012.

Three new members were voted on as Trustees at the AGM including Pam Plant from IHA, Caroline Gordon of Kitchen Kapers, and Akzo Nobel's Jason Hopkins.
