Why a Trustee? I have worked tirelessly over the last few years with two local schools; I have always been an advocate of joining the schools together to provide an enhanced service to the pupils.  Now the NCLT has been formed I have volunteered my services to help build on great experiences and create new benefits that the newly formed NCLT will bring to the children in the local area.
