He takes over from Lady Andrée Deane Barron, who retires after six years with TimeBank. She will continue to act as an Ambassador for the charity.
Peter says “I’m very proud to chair such a passionate and pioneering volunteering charity. Since it began in 2000 TimeBank has created ground-breaking mentoring and employee volunteering programmes, supporting some of the most marginalised groups in our society . 17 years on, the charity has evolved but we are just as excited about what volunteering can achieve. My thanks go to Andrée for her huge contribution and for creating the strong position that TimeBank is in today. I very much look forward to building on that work.”
