The Friends’ business is managed by Trustees – all of whom are members of the Friends and who must seek re-election every three years. They are assisted by non-voting voluntary advisers, mainly from the staff of the Eye Hospital.
Following our AGM on 10 May 2023, the Trustees and their advisers are currently:
Kay McCluskey (Chairman)
Kevin Abbey (Honorary Publicity Officer)
Simon St Leger-Harris (Honorary Treasurer)
The post of Honorary Secretary is currently vacant.
Mark Stevens (General Manager)
Cathy Williams (Consultant Ophthalmologist)
We have a few volunteers who manage our social media, maintain the two hospital gardens (for patients and staff) and assist with our governance.
We reimburse any expenses incurred by trustees, advisers and volunteers. We do not pay any other remuneration.
We have no employees.
We are regulated by the Charity Commission. Our Registered Charity Number is 274349.
