Executive Management Committee
I am the Charity Chairperson. I got involved with the charity 17 years ago, when my dad volunteered me. Since then I have never looked back. Although the Home is run on a day-to-day basis by Becky (the Matron) as chairperson, I am responsible for the overall management of The Home, and the Executive Management Committee. I meet with the charity’s Trustees to give feedback on how we are doing. I regularly attend external fundraising functions, and do lots of presentations to various organisations about who we are and what we do. I am good at coming up with solutions to situations and my “can do attitude” means that we are never put off tackling projects, no matter how big or small they are.
I am the committee secretary and make sure that our operational processes and procedures are documented and followed. I arrange the committee meetings and produce the meeting notes along with the annual charity report. I ensure that all donations are followed up with an appropriate thank you letter and draft grant applications for funds where appropriate.
I joined the charity committee in 2013 and retired from full time employment as a Quality and Business Improvement Director in 2014 now using the skills and experience accrued to the benefit of the charity. I am a bit of a stickler for ensuring that meetings, actions and projects are properly managed and recorded.
I am the treasurer, and have been on the Executive Management Committee since the year 2008.
I retired from full time employment in 2015 after 42 years with the same company in the heavy chemical industry; the last 30 years were spent in printing.
My committee responsibilities are all matters commercial and financial i.e. paying wages, invoices, and dealing with pensions, taxes and our banking partners.
I enjoy researching our homes’ history which stretches back over 120 years and which includes some interesting, hard working, kind, and very generous people.
I’m Becky, the Matron at Rochdale Children’s Moorland Home. My Role is to ensure that the home runs smoothly and to create a welcoming and friendly environment.
During the term time, I welcome schools, order and prepare meals for them.
During the school holidays, myself and a small team of staff ensure that the children in need who are referred to us are well cared for and have a fantastic holiday they will remember.
I am the Fundraising leader for Rochdale Children’s Moorland Home. I joined the committee within the last year but have supported the home with fundraising events prior to this.
