The new Dons Trust Board held a meeting on the evening of Wednesday 23 December 2020 to decide upon the Chair positions, and to confirm a calendar of further meetings for the year ahead.
With the Board keen to hit the ground running following the AGM held on Thursday 17 December, Board members had discussed various options in the days leading up to the meeting before unanimously voting in Jane Lonsdale and Xavier Wiggins as Co-Chairs with Charlie Talbot filling the Vice Chair position.
“It’s an honour to accept the position of Co-Chair – I believe Xavier and I will be able to work to our mutual strengths to the benefit of the DTB over what should be a busy but exciting 12 months.”
“I look forward to working with Jane and Charlie and indeed the whole Dons Trust Board. I think it’s fair to say the hard work starts here and I can’t wait to get going.”
“I think Jane and Xavier’s relative skillsets will complement each other and by sharing the position it really does mean we can play to our strengths while not overburdening any individual. I’m glad we were able to get this agreed earlier than has often been the case, and look forward to getting started in earnest.”
You can contact the Dons Trust Board members directly via email using the firstname.lastname@example.org format. When emailing the Chairs please send to both their individual accounts or to email@example.com. All emails sent to that account will automatically be forwarded onto the new Co-Chairs.
The Dons Trust Board would also like to take this opportunity to wish all Dons Trust members a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. We would like to thank you for your continued support in what has been a challenging year and we look forward to seeing you back at Plough Lane in the not-too-distant future.
