A brief introduction.
The Lawrence Home Nursing Team is overseen and managed by a Board of Trustees who are unpaid and act in a voluntary capacity. Each member has skills and an interest in a specific area of the Charity's work. The Board is responsible for ensuring the Lawrence Home Nursing Team:
- has the money it needs
- spends its money sensibly, on the activities it was raised for
- follows the law, including preparing reports and accounts to send to the Charity Commission
- doesn’t break the rules in its governing document (its constitution)
The trustees are:
Mrs. Alison Haine
I was born in Long Compton where I still live. I had 15 years away while I did my nursing studies and degree education. After qualifying, my nursing included working on wards, in the community and on a cancer screening programme.
I returned to the area in 1999 and worked as a District Nurse in Chipping Norton. My role involved working closely with the newly formed Lawrence Home Nursing Team while we supported patients at home. In 2008 I started working as a Falls Prevention Nurse in Oxfordshire. I believe in supporting patients to choose where they want to be and the Lawrence Home Nursing Team facilitate this ideal.
Ms. Anna Jo Lawrence (Secretary)
Teacher of History and Director of Studies at Sibford School
Mrs. Annette Lawrence
Annette was an inaugural trustee in 1999 and also leads the Fundraising Sub-Group which meets monthly to plan fundraising activity.
Dr. Jonathan Moore (Chairman)
Jonathan has been a GP in Chipping Norton since 1997 and was an inaugural trustee in 1999. He has a special interest in Palliative Care and has been Chairman of the Charity since 2003.
Mr. Danny Phillips
I'm a professional golfer, teaching the game to all levels of players at Cotswolds Club, Chipping Norton. I also compete. I enjoy football and listening to a vast array of music.
The Lawrence Home Nursing Team is close to my heart. My late mother, Jane Phillips, MBE, helped found the Charity and was later cared for by the nursing team. Being a Trustee of this Charity is an honour.
Dr. Rosemary Williams
Rosemary is a retired Specialist in Palliative Care. In the past she was Chairman of the appeal which built, commissioned and opened a Hospice in West Yorkshire. She has worked there and at Katharine House Hospice, Banbury. She was an ex-officio Trustee of St Christopher's Hospice, Sydenham for 3 years.
Mr. Anthony Yarrow
Tony has lived in Chipping Norton for the last twenty-five years. He is married to Judith, an artist.
They have four grown-up children, all of whom went to the Chippy school, and four grandchildren.
Tony set up Wise Investment in 1992, aiming to offer top-quality investment advice and fund management at a reasonable cost. The business has grown slowly and steadily, and now employs 22 people, including Tony's son Hugh, who manages the Evenlode Income fund. Wise Investment is gaining a national reputation as a fund management boutique, and was named Employer of the Year at the WOBA Awards in 2014.
