"I am so pleased to serve as a Trustee of Royal National Children's SpringBoard Foundation. There is little more worthy that I could possibly do with my time than helping Royal SpringBoard to remove some of the barriers to greater aspiration and achievement in education and life for the talented, ambitious and deserving young adults of this country."
