Millfields Inspired: Meet the Trustees

We’ve done Meet the Team, Meet the Community, and Meet the Director and now we bring you Millfields Inspired: Meet the Trustees!

Millfields Inspired is very fortunate to have an amazing board of trustees. They are committed to creating sustainable change by extending and developing the Widening Horizons programme. While aspiring to create future programmes and activities to engage young people and the local community. The trustees are drawn from across the city and have a wealth of experience in working with young people. And within the business world. Current trustees include senior figures from education, local businesses, the creative sector and the public sector.

The common factor amongst the Millfields Inspired trustees is their passion and commitment to young people. Today we’d like to introduce you to Andy Botterill. Operations Director at Drew and Co Electrical Contractors Ltd.

Work-life balance is essential, is it achievable?

Not if you`re struggling to pay the bills, but if you’re fortunate enough that it`s an option, then it helps take some time to step back, and assess what`s really important to you.
