Meet Anne Horton-FTCT Trustee….
Friday, July 6th, 2012 | Posted in Blog
As part of our on-going successful series of FTCT team blog posts, giving you the chance to meet the faces behind the charity, we are thrilled to bring you the first ever FTCT Trustee blog post, written by and featuring the fabulous Anne Horton, Managing Director of Hoopers and FTCT Trustee of 7 years! Take it away Anne…
What inspired you to join the FTCT board of Trustees?
Initially invited to join the board by Chair of Trustees, David Carter-Johnson, I was incredibly interested by the history and integrity of the trust, its’ links with Charles Dickens and its’ heritage, helping children and families in the UK, starting with the Purley Children’s Trust. Plus, I have been part of this industry since 1976, so I feel that I can really identify with the families we help.
Having been a Trustee for 7 years, what do you think of the ‘new look’ FTCT and what do you hope for the charity’s future?
The new look FTCT is much more relevant to the current industry. We live in a world of websites and social media, so it’s important to be ahead. The routes for parents and carers to be able to contact FTCT are much simpler now too, which is fantastic.
What do you think makes FTCT unique?
The fact that it is managed by people in the industry, to support people in the industry.
Why do you think it is important for the industry to support FTCT?
Because you never know when you might be in a situation yourself-FTCT has the ability to really help individuals across the industry.
We would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to Anne for taking the time to write this unique blog post, just for you- our readers!
