Thank you to John Tress and welcome to Luke Tomkins

John Tress has stepped down from the board of Beyond Conflict after five years of service. John is one of our founding trustees, steering our financial matters from the earliest days. He has been an exceptional driving force in our formation. John will continue to support us, and his board position has been taken over by Luke Tomkins, our Treasurer.

John commented: “It has been an absolute pleasure to be on the Board with you all. I’ll continue to support Beyond Conflict from the sidelines”.

Beyond Conflict Chairman, Ed Newell said: “Thank you, John, not only for giving Beyond Conflict such valuable service in terms of financial acumen, but for so often acting as host and always being such a wise, positive and supportive presence on the Board”.

Edna Fernandes, Director and Co-Founder said: “Thanks, John for helping bring the charity to where it now stands. You’ve provided wise counsel, dedication and direction to our cause. We wish you every success for the future. We’ll miss you.”

We welcome Luke to the board in his new role as Financial Trustee and look forward to him helping the charity grow. Earlier this year Luke raised well over £1,100 running the Brighton Marathon for us; he is already a Beyond Conflict fundraising hero.

“Thank you all so much for entrusting me with this position. I’m very pleased to be working alongside all of you and look forward to helping you all progress with the good work Beyond Conflict does,” said Luke.
