Two more for charitable trust

SHETLAND Charitable Trust has appointed two new trustees to its board.

Jolene Garriock is a business partner in Island Vista, which provides excursions for cruise ship passengers and coach holidays, while she is also a self-employed tour guide.

Yvette Hopkins has returned to live in Shetland after a career in the US military, with her most recent post seeing her direct intelligence operations for special forces in Africa.

Charitable trust chairman Bobby Hunter said: “Trustees are custodians of the trust’s charitable funds and act as ambassadors for the charity.

“We are particularly keen to develop a diverse board and encourage applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.

“We believe that Jolene and Yvette will bring fresh energy and experience to the board and I am delighted to welcome them.”

The board is now comprised of up to 12 selected trustees, with Shetland Islands Council deciding in recent years not to put forward councillor-trustees any more.

The other trustees as it stands are: Andrew Cooper (vice chairman), Geoffrey Hay, Tom Macintyre, Peter Malcolmson, Keith Massey, Ian Napier, Drew Ratter, Margaret Roberts and James Smith.
