Trustee Nick Harrison had wanted to become a Trustee of a charity for quite some time as in the past he had been involved in fundraising and volunteering activities for a wide variety of charities which, although fun, left him feeling that there must be more that he could do.
He researched the role of a Trustee and thought that it would fit well with his normal day job. The Trust appealed to him as he had always wanted to help in either the areas of sport or children. After researching the great work that the CFT does and meeting with the Chairman, CEO and the rest of the Trustees, Nick knew that this was an excellent charity with a team and Board who are equally dedicated, and therefore was keen to get involved.
Nick is very community focused and has worked in a voluntary capacity, raising money for charity, for many years. Nick is happily married to Megan and they live in the Calderdale region of Yorkshire, between Manchester and Leeds. He has worked for National Australia Bank for some 12 years. The bank is very community focused and actively encourages its employees to get involved in the community and charity initiatives and therefore he is well supported by it in his role as a Trustee.
Nick enjoys a wide variety of sports, in particular walking, running and cycling. Over the past few years he has used this to raise money for charities such as the Heart Foundation, Help the Hospice and Cancer Research.
