Colin Darnell

Trustee with Safeguarding Responsibility
Colin has a strong background in community engagement, having recently retired as a magistrate after 26 years. Colin lives locally in Haywards Heath and has also recently become a Trustee of the Yews Community Partnership in Haywards Heath. He also volunteers for the library to take books to those who are housebound and is an avid reader of history and non-fiction. Colin is the lead Trustee for Safeguarding at the Charity and will work closely with CEO, Glenys Creese, to ensure that we are compliant in all aspects of Safeguarding policies.

I am a great believer in volunteering that supports local communities. I was aware of the wonderful work that the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity does to help young children with cerebral palsy and other motor learning impairments to realise their full potential and support their families. It is a privilege as a trustee to be able to support the outstanding work they do.
