Who we are

 

Trustees

 

An introduction from Maggie Elliott, Chair of Cloudesley:

 

“As Trustees of Cloudesley, we take our role as guardians of this substantial endowment seriously.  We know the power of the legacy left nearly 500 years ago to change the lives of those living in Islington.  In this time, the Charity’s patch has changed enormously, but its Trustees have responded, supporting those in ill-health and poverty, and the local Church of England churches in the spirit of Richard Cloudesley’s will. The need for Cloudesley funds has never been greater, even as Islington has prospered, so the Trustees are committed to continuing the work of the Charity today and far into the future.”
