Lucy Cavendish Fellow Commoner Lynne Berry OBE has joined sustainable transport charity Sustrans as Chair of the Board of Trustees.
Her wealth of experience in the charity sector includes leading the Charity Commission and Women’s Royal Voluntary Service. She is the Chair of the newly-formed Breast Cancer Now, Vicechair of the Canal and River Trust, chair of the Commission of the Voluntary Sector and Ageing, a Fellow Commoner of our College, an Honorary Fellow at Cardiff University, a Professor at Cass Business School in London, and Trustee of four other charities. Earlier this year, Lynne was awarded the Daniel Phelan Award for Outstanding Achievement at the Charity Awards 2017, held by the publication Civil Society.
Of her new role, Lynne said:
“I’m delighted to be joining Sustrans. I’ve been impressed by its work to make it easier for people to walk and cycle and by its new strategy. I’ve been particularly impressed by Sustran’s commitment to measuring and evaluating its impact. There’s still lots to do but it’s great to see that resolve.”
College President Jackie Ashley said:
“Many congratulations to Lynne and we look forward to hearing about her plans to get even more of us here at Lucy Cavendish onto our bikes in the future!”
