Meet our Volunteer Board Members and the rest of the Team
Tony is a MHLECA Trustee and our Chairperson. He leads on corporate, finance, IT and fundraising
"I wanted to give back to my local community and chose to volunteer for MHLECA because I am touched by its mission to help lonely and isolated older people having experienced first hand the impact this had on my father. I was also inspired by the charity's wonderful outcomes and innovative projects and saw an opportunity for me to learn something new while using my skills and experience to help the charity move forward, and is both challenging and rewarding in equal measure."
Lisa is a MHLECA Trustee and Vice Chair. Lisa leads on our website and communications as well as directly helping and mentoring Team FaNs.
"Having been a part of the team for a few years, I am proud to witness the wonderful things that are happening to enrich the lives of our older residents in care homes. Feeling part of their local community again is invaluable to many of the residents and it’s very simple things that we can all do to ensure they are still included."
Emma is a MHLECA Trustee and leads on legal and employment matters.
"My reasons for becoming involved with MHLECA are both personal and professional. I can clearly see how these projects are hugely beneficial to all the people involved and the positive effects that come by them re-engaging with the community around them. Within the area of law I practice I believe I have developed useful skills which may assist the charity in trying to achieve its vision."
Megan is our newest Trustee and we are delighted she has agreed to join us.
I have 15 years' experience working with charities in Essex, building on and strengthening service delivery, carving new pathways and opportunities with a strong focus on partnership and multi agency relationships. In 2021 I graduated from Anglia Ruskin University with an HE CERT in Charity Management and Social Enterprise Leadership. MHLE is a fantastic charity that enables the local community to connect to residential care homes and in doing so show residents the care, consideration and access to opportunities we all need to thrive.
Tony is the passionate public face of FaNs as our FaNs Network Lead. He is funded for 4 days per week and he absolutely loves the work he does with and for the Charity.
