TRUSTEES

  • Caroline Scott, Chair of Trustees

    I have been a Trustee with Keeping Abreast since May 2018. Prior to this I had wonderful support from KA when I was having my reconstruction in 2015. I’ve enjoyed lots of fundraising for KA as well as being a model in two of the amazing ‘More Than Just Fashion’ Shows. I find the charity and its volunteers an inspiration and love being a part of the KA family.

  • Jordan Butler

    I joined Keeping Abreast in January 2019 after attending the ‘More Than Just Fashion Show’ to support my mum who had taken part. I was blown away by the charity and the support they had given her during her reconstruction. I feel privileged to be able to support KA as a Trustee.

  • Carina Carter

    I joined KA as a volunteer after hearing about the charity at work. I have been working as a nurse at the NNUH for over 15 years, and during the last four with plastic surgery patients. I have been caring for reconstruction patients during the first few days post-op, and feel that I can truly represent their real needs. As a Trustee I can act as an advocate for reconstruction patients and offer recommendations that will directly affect their recovery.  I am excited and privileged to be involved with KA and am looking forward to helping to shape its future.

  • Rachel McArthur

    I was a nurse for 18 years, spending the last 10 years as a nursing officer in the British Army. Since changing career, I have worked for the past 19 years running my own Podiatry business. I am married with two daughters at Uni and, with a little more spare time now, have become part of the team at KA as a Trustee.

  • Emma Queensborough

    I decided to become a Trustee with Keeping Abreast as I wanted to play an active role in supporting the charity’s growth and development. The charity has been a great personal support to me and the dear friends I have met along the way, so this is my opportunity to ‘pay it forward’ whilst learning additional skills from this new and exciting role.

  • Victoria Vazquez (Treasurer)

    I am a qualified chartered accountant at Price Bailey and, since joining the corporate team in 2016, I have worked with the Not-For-Profit sector and am keen to bring these skills to Keeping Abreast. On a personal level, I love a cuppa with friends, playing board games, as well as walking the dog.
