Founding Director of TCC
I was one of the founding directors of TCC in 1995 to tackle social injustices by supporting diverse communities to gain the power they need to enact change.
I worked alongside Lawrence Holden, at the time senior partner of Brabners Liverpool, to obtain charitable status. This broke new territory for the Charity Commission as TCC had no fixed objectives such as assisting people with drug addiction but rather supported local groups through community organising setting their own agendas and taking action to improve their communities.
I acted as Treasurer on a voluntary basis for ten years, helped them raise money and personally obtained £30k from the Getty Foundation through a chance meeting when Club Caribbean sponsored a special two day cricket match at Arundel; West Indies vs. S Africa.
