  • Mike Newitt - Chair of the Board

    "I am an Age UK H&W Trustee and also Chair of the Board of Trustees, as well as being the Chair of Finance Committee. Why do I work with Age UK H&W? My wife told me to do something useful!!" 

  • Mark Richardson - Vice Chair

    "I am Vice Chair of the Board and Chair of the Social Enterprises Committee. Having seen how Age UK H&W provided practical help and advice to my parents when they needed it, I thought this is an organisation worth supporting. Plus, Mrs Newitt asked me to make sure Mike behaved himself!" 

  • Trish Haines - Trustee

    "I have been a supporter of the organisation for many years - the work we do is so important, and so valuable to many older people. Plus, I love working with the people in the organisation - there is such a can-do attitude and a willingness to help."

  • Robert Rankin - Trustee

    "I have been a Trustee for Age UK H&W for over 5 years, after leaving the IT business I wanted to apply my skills to a different area and Age UK H&W provides a vital social service for older people."

  • Peter Evans - Trustee

    "I joined the Board in March 2019 following the merger of AGEUK Droitwich with the regional charity. I served as Chair and acting CEO at Droitwich which gave me an insight into the needs of older people and how they may be addressed."

  • Matthew Burke - Trustee

    "I have been working as a Trustee with Age UK since November 2017. Retiring early left me with plenty of time to “ give something back to society”  My voluntary work also includes other charity work across Worcestershire.  Working for a local charity allows me to experience the  positive outcomes for older people in need.  It has always been a passion to  help improve services for older people."

  • Charli Wood - Trustee

    "I joined as a trustee in spring 2018. Born and raised in North Herefordshire, I now live and work in London, as head of child trafficking in the Home Office. With two generations of my family still living in the county, I visit often and still feel very connected to the county and the charity, having worked for Age Concern Leominster and District shortly after I left school."

  • Maggie Wheatley - Trustee

  • Keith Trafford - Trustee

    "I have been a Trustee for over a decade (14 years!).. I do it because I feel that Age UK H&W is an organisation that really gives back to the older people of the community."
