Saying goodbye to Clare!

Clare Jack stepped down after 9 years’ service as a Trustee.

Clare Jack – one of the original Greenbank youth group members from 1999, more recently served as a Scottish Love in Action Trustee and Chair of our Finance sub-committee.

In December she stepped down after 9 years’ service as a Trustee.

We asked Clare if she would like to share a few words with us about her experience with Scottish Love in Action, and she wrote the following:

‘It’s hard to believe my time on the SLA board has come to an end. It has been a wonderful experience working with so many dedicated and passionate individuals over the years, from my fellow board members and the amazing SLA volunteers to our partners in India.

The charity has faced challenges in recent times and the effects of coronavirus in particular will continue for many years to come. However, it has been so heartening to see everyone involved continue in their unwavering support for SLA and the amazing work it supports out in India.

I have been privileged to contribute my skills and experience as a member of the SLA board. In return, I have gained such a rewarding experience seeing the children it supports grow, develop and flourish under the programmes and initiatives of our partners in India.

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has volunteered or dedicated their time, effort and energy to SLA over the last 23 years and I look forward to continuing to support and champion SLA into the future.’

We are so thankful for Clare’s valuable contribution in the running of Scottish Love in Action, and wish her the very best in her future endeavours!
