As a Property Operations Manager for a major Blue Chip Company, David was responsible for Health and Safety and the maintenance of their properties from Northamptonshire down to the Thames estuary.

On retirement he decided that he wanted to get involved in voluntary work in the North East London Area. This is where David found Uniting Friends as an outgoing and innovative charity who are committed to providing Special Needs services to the local community.

David joined UF in January 2016 as a voluntary care worker for day and evening services, specialising in sports activities. He joined the board of trustees in March 2017.
