Former ICE President David Orr, was last month selected as the ICE Benevolent Fund chair for 2015 by its board of Trustees.
Trustees also elected new management committee members. They are Tom Barton, Jon Sturgess, Brian Waters, Mike Chater, Jeni Nelson, and David Porter. They also voted on new cases ranging from student support, applications for housing at Mill Hill Close and financial assistance to those suffering illness and hardship. Past awards for ICE members and their families were noted.
Orr thanked his predecessor, William Kemp, for “all the hard work and dedication he and his team have demonstrated during his time chairing the Committee.”
“We are also delighted to welcome new members to the team to further strengthen our activities over the coming months,” he added.
Kemp presented Trustees with a financial review of the Benevolent Fund’s 2014 activities and concluded that the Ben Fund is “weathering well in the current economic climate”.
Benevolent Fund chief executive Kris Barnett, welcomed new members of the committee, highlighted the range of services on offer and explained the new brand and vision for the charity.
“We are well placed to support more ICE members and their families throughout 2015 and look forward to working with a robust management committee.” she said.
