Team Moon Gazer has been a long-term supporter of It’s On the Ball, the Norfolk-based male cancer charity.
David is delighted that he has been invited by the charity to join them as a trustee.
David and Rachel have over the last few years been active fundraisers and supporters of IOTB.
This includes each January the brewery organising an awareness campaign for the charity with a charity beer – Tobi’s Tipple – sold in pubs across Norfolk and Suffolk with the aim to get young men talking about testicular cancer.
David has also raised over £41,000 for IOTB through his beer push efforts which has seen him push a barrel of beer from his brewery to St Barts Hospital; in London, and more recently pushing the barrel 7 marathons in 7 days across Norfolk.
David will use my role as a trustee to continue fundraising and awareness but also hopes to bring some additional business and marketing experience to help the charity.
Announcing the appointment (and also that of experienced medical trustee Joanne Jennings) , charity CEO Vince Wolverson commented:
“I’m delighted that Jo and David have joined our board of trustees, and I look forward to working with them in the future.
As a small charity we rely on the knowledge and expertise of our trustees to ensure the charity runs efficiently and complies with the Charities Commission regulations. Jo’s experience as an Oncology Nurse, and David’s business background will be invaluable in ensuring we use the funds and donations we receive wisely to meet our charitable aims of raising awareness of testicular cancer, and support those diagnosed with the disease and their families.
To have two supporters who have direct experience of our work and share our passion to save lives and raise awareness join our existing board will be a great asset to the charity going forward.”
Jo is delighted to be joining the charity a trustee as she explains:
“I have been involved with Vince and the small team at It’s on the Ball ( IOTB) since joining Lisa 2 years ago. The charity provides a much-needed service, and I am delighted to be able to join as a trustee and give more input and insight to help them continue their work”.
