A Fond Farewell and a Warm Welcome
During July we bid farewell to The Pituitary Foundation’s longstanding Treasurer and Trustee, Mike Beaven.
Mike has been a Trustee of the charity for the past fourteen years. He has contributed greatly in many ways to the organisation, not only in his roles as Trustee and Treasurer of the charity, but also in terms of participating in activities to help raise awareness, attending local support groups’ meetings and raising funds for the charity through climbing Ben Nevis, hosting open gardens, participating in golf days and supporting various other initiatives.
Mike has guided the charity’s financial decisions with considerable skill and wisdom over the years. He was due to retire in 2020, however due to the uncertainties and challenges caused by the pandemic Mike kindly offered to continue to help support and steer the organisation through such an unprecedented time. We are indebted to him for his generosity in postponing his retirement and playing such a critical role in the charity’s leadership during the most acute phase of the pandemic.
Our sincerest thanks to Mike for his commitment and dedication to The Pituitary Foundation over so many years.
We are very pleased to welcome current Trustee, Phil Rouse as our new Treasurer. Phil is a Chartered Accountant with a 30 year career in corporate finance and banking. Phil is a pituitary patient and has been a Trustee since 2019 and has served on the charity’s Finance Committee since being elected as a Trustee. We look forward to working with Phil in his new role and thank him for all of his contributions to date to The Pituitary Foundation.
