Trustee details


Cheryl Curtis (Chair)

Cheryl has lived in Wells since 1997. She became a trustee of Wells United Charities upon her appointment as Headteacher at Alderman Peel High School in Wells. This was in 2001. After leaving Alderman Peel, to run her own business, she has been very happy to remain as a trustee believing that Wells United Charities makes a valuable contribution within Wells and that local people really benefit from what it has to offer. Since becoming Chair she has actively promoted fund raising in order to significantly add to the limited annual sums raised through land and investments held by the charity. This has enabled Wells United Charities to better support local people with worthwhile sums appropriate to our modern age.
