Andy joins St. Giles board as non-executive director

St. Giles Hospice, based in the Midlands, has appointed three new non-executive directors to their board; Andy Wilkinson, Richard Thomas and Toby Arrowsmith alongside existing director Andrew Knightley.

St Giles Finance and Commercial director Bernard Kumeta said the decision to create the combined board was driven by the need to maximise revenue from existing revenue streams including shops, lottery and fundraising as well as exploring new opportunities.

“While a percentage of our costs are met through NHS contracts, we have an annual fundraising target of more than £9 million to reach and I look forward to working with the new board to explore creative, innovative and sustainable ways to do it.”
Andy about his new challenge  ‘’I have watched with fascination the growth of St Giles and the extraordinary work they do, when I was approached about a role to help shape and steer the trading business I was honoured and I look forward to providing any advice, knowledge and insights that will help the charity find new donors, supporters and evangelists so that St Giles can continue to do such amazing, critical and heartfelt work.”
