Our next #TrusteesWeek chat is with Jayne Tucker, who is the Trustee with Special Responsibility for Finance and a Welsh speaker.
What’s a day in the life of a PAVS Trustee like?
Trustees, are responsible for the charity’s governance. We ensure that the charity operates within its charitable objectives and complies with legislation. We agree the strategic direction and are responsible for monitoring performance and managing risk. We do this by meeting regularly and receive regular updates from the team. I enjoy learning about the different activities of the teams, it brings the work of the charity to life. I sometimes spend time in the office in High Street, helping those managing the numbers in delving into the finance ahead of a board meeting.
Favourite place in Pembrokeshire to visit?
Tricky, there’s so many, for beach it has to be Poppit Sands with the lovely Crwst Café, which just sneaks into Pembrokeshire, otherwise, Foel Cwm Cerwyn, having been brought up not too far away.
Are you involved with any other community groups or organisations in Pembrokeshire?
I’ve just started to sing with Landsker singers, we meet on Monday evening and the choir puts on a few concerts each year.
Do you have any hobbies or interests?
Walking the coastal path, we walked the whole path in 2012 and hope to do it again, having made a start with walking the St Dogmael’s to Moylegrove section a couple of weeks ago, this time with our 2 year old Jack Russell.
What is the best thing about being a Trustee?
Knowing that our work supports a thriving charity and voluntary sector in Pembrokeshire.
Fun fact about you?
Not sure about whether or not this is a fun fact, but I love working with charities, to such an extent, it’s also my day job. I’m currently Interim Director of Finance & Resources with the Marine Conservation Society and studying part time for a Masters in Charity Accounting and Financial Management.
