Roger has enjoyed working with Entrust since April, discovering the breadth of projects that are currently being funded, the success of completed projects and the great benefits that they bring to the communities involved.

His professional life started at an accounting firm – Whelan and Cook, followed by a start up wine company. The last 11 years have been spent working in a variety of roles at The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

In summer a lot of Roger’s time is spent chasing red balls around a cricket field – something he has done for over 30 years. The rest of his time is spent chasing his son around the house – in a good way!
