2 Wish Upon A Star has trustees who established the charity to to raise funds to improve bereavement services, with an emphasis on bereavement support for parents after losing their child suddenly and traumatically. The role of the Trustees is to ensure good governance of the charity as laid down by the Charity Commission. The following people have been by my side since the night we lost our angel George and are still walking along side me today. They form the board of Trustees.
Lindsay Gray - Chairman
Lulu Burridge - Vice Chairperson
Allyson Morris - Treasurer
Marianne Mannello - Secretary
The trustees work with a Charity Working Group of individuals from all areas of the community each bringing skills and ideas from a variety of perspectives. Alongside the trustees, the Working Group:
* reviews the current framework of 2 Wish Upon A Star and to make recommendations on how to develop this further.
* discusses ideas and share a variety of examples of good practice.
* utilises individuals fundraising experience.
We also have a group of volunteers, who without them, the charity would not exist. We have about 45 volunteers who have signed up to wear their "Team 2 Wish" t-shirts with pride. We strive to make every volunteer feel appreciated and valued. These volunteers help to ensure the smooth running of the fund-raising activities of the charity.
'Friends of 2 Wish'
'Friends of 2 Wish' support our work through active promotion and support of the charity, raising its profile and the aims of the charity wherever possible. This group may be called upon to support the charity for practical purposes from time to time.
If anyone feels like they would rather me involved in this group please let me know. Every little bit helps us and I never want anyone to feel like they are not doing enough. You are all incredible people who are also leading very hectic lives.
Without the help and support of those raising money for us every day 2 Wish Upon A star would not be the success if it today. If you have run, cycled, baked cakes or shaken a bucket for us this year - thank you. Please keep supporting us.
