Two New Trustees Join Cancer Fund for Children’s Board

Cancer Fund for Children is delighted to welcome two new trustees to Cancer Fund for Children’s voluntary Board

Donal Hutchinson is a Chartered Engineer and has over 40 years’ international experience in the construction industry. He has key skills in Building Design, Leadership, Team Building, Strategic Planning, Program and Project Management and developing and delivering cost effective innovative solutions to complex projects. Donal is a Fellow of Engineers Ireland and holds an IOD diploma in Company Direction.

Robin McCormick is a chartered electrical engineer and an independent strategic advisor working mainly in the renewable energy sector. He was Chair & MD of SONI the business in NI that operates the electricity grid and ‘keeps the lights on’ and held all-island group executive roles. Robin is a Chartered Director and has several non-executive roles.

“Donal and Robin join us at an exciting time for Cancer Fund for Children as we continue to develop our services for children impacted by cancer across the island or Ireland and raise funds towards our capital appeal to build a second Daisy Lodge. I would like to welcome them both to the team and thank them for giving their time, skills and experience to support us in our mission to help ensure no child has to face cancer alone.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our trustee Peter O’Brien who has taken on the role of Chair. Without the support of our incredibly committed voluntary board we could not be here for children and young people when they need our support most. ”
