Cancer Support Scotland welcomes two new trustees to the Board

Cancer Support Scotland’s board of Trustees have confirmed Meg Wright & Fiona Dury as two new appointments to the charity’s Board.

These exciting new appointments will support the leading wellbeing charity for those affected by Cancer across Scotland as it continues to deliver vital support services across Scotland during the pandemic and thrive in a post pandemic world.

With over 20 years’ experience working in the sector, Meg has gained experience of leading both local and national voluntary organisations as well as working across the borders of the UK and beyond. Meg started her working life as a nurse, working for 8 years in the community, before branching out to medical education in the private sector. In addition to her role in the voluntary sector, Meg is the lead for Service Learning with the Scotgem degree at the University of St Andrews. Meg is a past Chair of ACOSVO (Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations), Cruse Scotland and Emmaus Glasgow.

Meg said: “I am delighted to join the board at Cancer Support Scotland at a time when charities are never more needed. I am pleased to play my part, along with others, to ensure the charity, it’s staff and volunteers are able to deliver their important support services for people living with cancer.

Jack Ogston, Chair of Cancer Support, said: “I am delighted to have Fiona and Meg join the Cancer Support Scotland Board at a pivotal time for the future of charity given the coronavirus pandemic. With both their skills and experience i’m confident they will help the charity to continue to support the wellbeing of those affected by cancer across Scotland through highly effective governance. I look forward to working with both Fiona and Meg over the coming year to further our vision.
