Walk Tall appoints first lawyer to board of trustees14.05.2014
Aman Sandhu, trainee solicitor at Gullands Solicitors, Maidstone, has been appointed to the board of trustees of the Kent charity Walk Tall to provide legal expertise as the charity moves to develop a corporate strategy.
Aman specialises in Charity and Commercial law at Gullands and was chosen by Walk Tall for her knowledge of charity governance and property matters. She has a wealth of experience in working with charities looking for funding and grants and has dealt with a wide range of commercial property transactions.
Although they have been seeking legal expertise for a long time, Walk Tall has never had a legal trustee before and Aman’s appointment will provide a guide for the board as it develops a corporate strategy to generate income and provide the charity with some financial security. The charity, which is based in Ebbsfleet, provides Kent’s vulnerable children and adults with counseling and support, through arts, education and therapeutics,
to build confidence and self-esteem.
“I am thrilled to be part of such an amazing enterprising charity that really looks at giving people the confidence to make changes and move forward,” said Aman. “I am privileged to be working with such a dynamic board that truly cares about developing the charity and making a difference.”
Rev. David Scott, Chairman at Walk Tall, commented: “The trustees at Walk Tall are extremely pleased that Aman has joined our group. We definitely need somebody who is knowledgeable about legal matters. She is obviously a person of enthusiasm and we hope that she finds the task pleasing and fulfilling.”
Commenting on Aman’s appointment, Ann Duke, Founder of Walk Tall, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Aman has joined our board. Aman not only brings legal expertise, she brings incredible drive, enthusiasm and a genuinely caring heart for vulnerable people. We are very privileged that Aman has joined us – and very proud that she is from Gullands Solicitors.”
