We are pleased to welcome two new trustees to the charity, as we move into the next phase of The Horton Chapel Project. Gayle Young and Sean Kelly, who both live in Epsom, bring a wealth of experience to the board.
Gayle has established several small businesses with her husband over the last 25 years, working as the financial lead managing everything from strategic planning to daily cash flow. She has previously served as a charity trustee, and also works as a Leadership Development Professional providing training and executive coaching, specialising in mental health and stress management.
Gayle said: “I am excited to be supporting The Horton Chapel Project as a trustee in its aim of promoting wellbeing and good mental health through arts, culture and creativity. This is a wonderful project that will bring connection and hours of fun to the local community.”
Sean is the chief executive of a locally-based medical research charity and has over 20 years’ experience in the not-for-profit sector. He has an Masters in Charity Resource Management and is a certified member of the Institute of Fundraising. Prior to embarking on a career within the charitable sector, Sean was a PGA qualified golf professional.
Sean said: “I am delighted to be joining the trustees to assist with the delivery of this important project. As a local resident and lover of the arts, it is great to see the historic chapel being transformed into a valuable social and cultural asset which will be enjoyed by the whole community”
Chair Ian Reeves added: “It is great to have Gayle and Sean on board. They both bring extensive experience in different areas, as well as governance, which will further strengthen the development of the charity and how we serve the community. We look forward to working with them.”
