Valerie Jolliffe - Trustee
I was in the retail industry with my own Ladies Fashion shop from 1978 until 1989 when I became a Partner with my husband in the manufacture and selling of Fireplaces. I did all the administration for the business including buying materials, bookkeeping and running the shop and of course hiring and firing staff as required. In 2001 I was President of Soroptimist International of Bournemouth when I met Sharon Muiruri with members of Vita Nova and was happy to be able to support the group as our Charity for three years. This association has continued since then and we help each other out from time to time. I feel privileged to be a Trustee of this worthwhile organisation.
