Our board of trustees has recently welcomed two new members: Lindsey Tunbridge-Adams and Kelly O’Haire.
Lindsey is a qualified social worker with twenty years experience of working in child protection with the local authority. She was also the LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer) managing allegations against staff/ volunteers working with children. For the last five years she has been Director of Safeguarding at a large local secondary school and is also a Safeguarding Advisor for Fulham FC and Sussex County Cricket. In her spare time she loves horse riding with her daughter (she has two horses), as well as walking her dog Teddy and reading.
Of her new appointment, Lindsey says: “I’m really looking forward to working with SSW as a trustee. Through a close friend whose daughter is visually impaired, I have heard lots about the brilliant work the charity does. I have some experience of working with the charity CLAPA (Cleft Lip and Palate Association) as a parent mentor, as my daughter was born with a cleft. I can’t wait to meet the team and service users and I’m keen to get stuck in with some of the amazing activities SSW provides and learning more about how the charity works.”
Alongside Lindsey is Kelly O’Haire. Kelly is the director of local marketing agency Constructive Marketing. Having worked in PR and marketing for around 30 years, Kelly’s business has recently taken a new direction and now offers specialist services to the construction, highways and building services sectors. In her spare time, Kelly is a keen runner and an adventurous baker. She is also known to get behind the microphone and show off her vocal talents as part of the duo Sisstory.
Kelly is also pleased to be starting a new role as trustee: “I’m excited to be working with SSW as a new trustee and I’m looking forward to using my marketing experience to make sure as many people as possible learn about the brilliant work that goes on to benefit visually impaired people around Worthing and beyond!”
