Chairman and Funding
Nicky Brooks joined the Board of Cotswold Friends in 2016 and brings with her experience of applying for grants, chairing meetings and working with councils.
Nicky has worked in office admin and recruitment and has served as Chair of the Parish Council for her rural village for several years, where she has overseen a complete renovation and refurbishment of the village hall including raising all funds, and successfully fought developers to save the village pub. Nicky was also Chair of a school PTA where successful fundraising added real value to the school’s infrastructure and facilities. Nicky was looking for a new challenge and joined Cotswold Friends to help take the Charity forward as the increasing older population, and lack of statutory services, puts pressure on the voluntary sector.
