Reverend, broadcaster, musician and Strictly Come Dancing star Rev. Richard Coles will become the Patron of Greatwell Homes.
On 28th September 2017, he will be stepping down from our Board after six years and will take on his new role where he will be attending key events and continuing to provide expertise to the Board and Executive team.
Rev. Richard Coles said: “I have had a great six years working with the Board and Executive team at Greatwell Homes, and although I am sad to be stepping down from the Board, I’m delighted I can continue as Patron and to work closely with an organisation who are an important part of the local community”.
Tim Davy, Chair of the Board, commented: “Since Rev. Richard Coles joined the Board of Greatwell Homes in 2011, the whole of its Senior Team has enjoyed working with him because of his infectious enthusiasm for the work of the association in general and his special talents in the area of social needs. Richard has been a committed member of the Board enquiring into social matters in particular.
In recent months, Greatwell Homes have joined the public at large in enjoying the increasing success of Richard’s broadcasting career. It has been inevitable that Richard’s broadcasting commitments have made it more difficult for him to attend meetings of the Board, but we have sought to maintain Richard’s very valuable connection with the association.
I’m delighted that Richard has accepted our invitation to become Patron of Greatwell Homes and will continue to attend major events in the life of the association.”
