Welcoming New Ambassadors to the Trust

17 October, 2018

We are delighted to announce that we have two new Ambassadors, Peter Anwyl Harris and John Bennett, who have joined our team of volunteers at the Trust.  Our Ambassadors are vital to running the Marsh Awards and dedicate their time voluntarily to support the Awards and build relationships with our partners.

Recognition of people’s achievements in the sector is key to what we are trying to achieve through the Marsh Awards and our Ambassadors play a huge part in helping us achieve this. Their interest in the Sector and the Awards help us to build stronger relationships with our partner organisations and the Award winners, as well as allowing us to grow and develop the Award scheme.

The Ambassador scheme was initiated in 2014 to build stronger relationships with our Award partners and engage key people who have been involved and interested in the Trust’s work over the years and who wanted to have a more formal role when representing the Trust.

Both John and Peter have had a long standing involvement with MCT and the not for profit sector. Peter comes from an Investment Management background but is Chairman of two other charities The Childwick Trust and the Romney Marsh Historic Churches Trust.  Peter has presented our Awards with the Rare Breed Survival Trust and the Kent Wildlife Trust.  John was CEO of the Kent Wildlife Trust for 20 years and worked closely with the MCT in running the longstanding Marsh Nature Conservation Awards, which were set up over 21 years ago.

We are hugely grateful to have these two individuals on board and look forward to posting more news about the Awards and the Ambassadors roles going forward.
