Hugh Strickland appointed as Chairman of Shropshire Rural Communities Charity
7th January, 2016
Hugh Strickland, Corporate Finance Partner based in Shrewsbury, has been appointed Chairman of the Shropshire Rural Communities Charity.
Shropshire Rural Communities Charity (RCC) has been established for over 50 years for the benefit of people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin. With 25 staff and 150 volunteers, it is one of 38 RCCs operating throughout England, funded by the Government, local authorities, charitable trusts, public donations and membership subscriptions.
Annually, the organisation works with over 600 voluntary and community groups, offers support to more than 3,800 individual family carers, and develops and delivers projects and services for a wide cross-section of Shropshire’s residents.
Julia Baron, Chief Executive of Shropshire RCC, says: “Hugh’s wide-ranging experience of corporate finance will be of huge benefit to our RCC – from providing expert advice, to putting us in touch with key organisations and individuals around the region. His legal expertise, as well as his background as a former trustee of a community foundation made him the perfect candidate for this position. He really understands our vision for Shropshire and we are very excited to have him as our new Chairman.”
Hugh says: “Shropshire RCC’s valuable work provides vital services all across the county. With public sector budgets under more pressure than ever, donations and endowment funds have never been more important and are absolutely key to the RCC’s ability to maintain its invaluable level of support to local people. I am looking forward to working with the Board members to ensure we are tapping into every available income stream.”
