UKLFI Charitable Trust is delighted to announce the appointment of Susan Storring and Caroline Kendal as new Trustees.
Susan is originally from Montreal, but has lived in London since 1972. After studying at McGill and Chicago Universities, she trained as a Psycho-analytic Child Psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic, and worked in the NHS for over 25 years, taking early retirement in December 2005.
She subsequently studied Yiddish and the History of Jews in Eastern Europe as a Continuing Education student at UCL’s Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies.
She has assisted UKLFI with various projects including those involving student unions, charities and a Turner prize entry and is keen to become more involved with UKLFI Charitable Trust. She is also a Member and Trustee of the Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies.
Caroline Kendal played a leading role in setting up UKLFI Charitable Trust when she was Director of Operations at UKLFI Limited. She brings to the Board of UKLFI Charitable Trust her deep knowledge of the work of both entities, as well as her skills and experience as a former solicitor, management consultant, entrepreneur and chair of the governors of a leading grammar school.
Jonathan Turner has resigned as a Trustee of UKLFI Charitable Trust but will continue to support the charity as its Executive Director under the supervision of its Board of Trustees.
These changes achieve a substantial reduction in the overlap between the Boards of UKLFI Limited and UKFLI Charitable Trust complying with recent guidance of the Charity Commission.
