Prof Stephen Singleton’s Farewell Dinner

A farewell from Stephen…


After 10 years on the Board of The Children’s Foundation (7 as your Chairman, and 3 years before that as a Trustee) I have decided that it is time that I step down and allow a change of leadership. I am sad to go as I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Chair; but I am leaving The Children’s Foundation in the knowledge that the charity is in as good shape now as it has been in all the time I have known it.

We can all be proud of the knowledge that we really are making a positive difference to the lives of the children in our region

This is a remarkable achievement, given the difficulties the recent recession has created for small organisations like ours, and it is a tribute to the hard work of the staff and the Board, but also for your continuing loyalty and support – thank you so much.

As ever, I would like to thank my Board of Trustees and my staff who have all worked hard to make The Children’s Foundation the important local charity that it is. Most of all I would like to thank you all for your support. I step down as Chair knowing that we are making a difference, but also very aware that there is still so much for us to do to really improve the health and well-being of children in our region; please continue to do what you can to help.
