After regaining control of my blog from our Young Ambassador, Alex, I am excited (and a little nervous) to share with you all that Alex and several other Young Ambassadors are coming into the Trust next Tuesday to take over for the day!
At first the team and I thought this would mean a day off for us, but apparently not…these youngsters mean business and it’s going to be a busy day!
I’ll keep you updated on some of the projects they will be working on next Tuesday as there’s a few very exciting things that they are helping us progress and I promise that you’ll be the first to know.
This week, like every week at the Trust, has been busy and I have seen two extremes of my job as Chief Executive – on Tuesday I was at Bagshot Park with our Royal Patron, HRH The Countess of Wessex, and then this morning I was heaving old office furniture into a skip outside our office. Our spring clean here at Trust HQ has been long overdue. With so many exciting projects in the pipeline, we need the space to accommodate new members of the team and to help us deliver those projects. It already looks fantastic – anyone passing by, please feel free to pop in and see us and our Tribute garden, which is in full bloom at the moment.
And so, as another week ends, it means I am another week closer to our China trek in October. And this can only mean one thing; I need to up my training! If you’ve ever thought about challenging yourself physically and fancy taking on a once in a lifetime trip, why not sign up to do an event for us – our Five Valleys Walk is just around the corner (last Sunday in September) and could ease you in nicely to a bigger trek overseas.
I would definitely recommend doing either – here in the wonderful Gloucestershire countryside, or overseas in a far flung place. And, by doing so, you will be helping the thousands of people we support every year; helping them to have a better future.
Chief Executive of the Meningitis Trust
