As this week is national Trustees’ Week, here’s a sneak peak of an article from our next issue of New Pathways magazine.
So…it’s time to meet Martin!
Martin Hopkins joined us as an MS-UK Trustee in 2008, and acts as our Chair of the Board. Martin and his wife Rachel have three children, Polly, Alexander and Rowan, and live with a working cocker spaniel called Ruby!
‘I joined the Board of MS-UK for two main reasons. Firstly I wanted to be involved in helping a local charity and using my skills developed in my work to help.
‘Secondly one of my best friends was diagnosed with MS and having seen him deal with the shock of that I felt fairly helpless in terms of the practical support I could offer. I thought therefore that becoming involved with MS-UK would be a way of providing support.’
In his spare time Martin plays the tenor saxophone for fun and runs for fitness and relaxation. His greatest achievement is running 12 Virgin Money London Marathon, ten of them in a row!
In the next issue of New Pathways (which is out on 01 December) we will be introducing all of our Trustees to you, so subscribe today or search for My MS-UK on your app store to get the digital version!
