JRCT welcomes three new trustees
19 August 2020
We’re delighted to announce the appointment of three new trustees.
Hannah Darton, Gwyn Morgan and Rita Remi-Judah bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to JRCT.
For their first year they will be known as "sitting-in" trustees as they become familiar with the working life of the Trust and the various tasks trustees fulfil.
Hannah (pictured above, top left), who is from York, studied at Imperial College London, completing her PhD in biomedical engineering. She has since worked at the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Housing Trust in various roles. Her latest role is as technology business partner within the care team. She’s a member of York Area Meeting and has been volunteering at Yorkshire Friends Holiday School since 2015.
Gwyn (pictured above, bottom left), who is originally from Bolton, lives in Wandsworth, where she began attending Wandsworth Quaker Meeting in 1984 and became a member of Kingston and Wandsworth Area Meeting in 2014.
Having started her career in practice as a lawyer, she later worked as a legal editor and drama teacher. In 2003, she founded Prisoners’ Penfriends, a charity which makes it possible for volunteers to correspond with prisoners in prisons in England and Wales, and to do so in safety. This service grew until, in 2013, it gained the endorsement of HM Prison Service. She was awarded the OBE for services to prisoners in 2017.
Rita (pictured above, right), who is originally from Nigeria, studied at the London School of Economics both for her undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. She has worked in technology and banking as an analyst and programme manager and also plays chamber music and adjudicates on youth panels. Rita is a member of the North West London Area Meeting.
