Each month, we will be talking to a member of staff and finding out a bit more about them and what their role is within the charity.
Name: Lee Foster
Job Title: Charity Trustee
What is involved in your role?
Holding ourselves, as a group of Trustees, accountable to the action we make, and ensuring that we
are delivering the purpose of the charity. Coming up with new ideas, such as fundraising events,
changes to our services and acting as a sounding board for the other Trustees.
What is your background?
I have always lived In Northamptonshire, and I have been married for over 28 years, with two
daughters. I’ve spent the last 27 years working at PwC, most recently as a HR Business Partner,
advising on all kinds of people matters. I am also a qualified Mental Health First Aider.
What motivates you?
Making a difference to someone, no matter how little. Kelly’s Heroes enables me to do that.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I probably answered it in the previous question, so as a different answer, working with likeminded
people. Also, let’s not forget that Kelly’s Heroes gave me the opportunity to cycle across the US as
part of The Loneliest Road Challenge, which was an amazing experience.
If you could send a message out to the entire world, what would it be?
“Being happy doesn’t mean you have it all. It simply means you’re thankful for all you have.”
This month’s random question: If you could go on holiday anywhere in the world, where would it
be and why?
The Maldives. My wife and I had it booked for Summer 2020 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, but of course COVID hit, so we are yet to get there.
