We Love MCR strengthens Board of Trustees

We've added four new Trustees to our Board, strengthening our capabilities, and we hope our supporters welcome them just as warmly as we have!

Eddie Smith brings huge experience in the Commercial and Development sectors across the City, and currently takes a leading role at VITA Group property business.

Debra Cooper is co-Head of the prestigious Shoosmiths law firm in Spinningfields. Her wealth of experience across legal and professional services will bolster the charity’s governance and reach across the business sector.

Louise Busby, Finance Director at top Manchester law firm JMW, will bring her expertise to the financial strategy and operations of the charity.

Andreas Georgiou founded the digital agency Uni4m. He will steer the charity to expand its digital communications and reach, while strengthening the We Love MCR brand.

Our Chair, Lord Mayor of Manchester Donna Ludford, said:

“I thank all our new Trustees for committing their time and expertise – we can’t grow without brilliant Trustees. Their contributions to our growth and leadership will set us up for more successes in our work to support ambitious communities and young people across our city.”

We pride ourselves on forging bespoke partnerships which work to mutual advantage. We encourage any business leader wishing to explore how they can partner with us to email our Head of Charity, Ged Carter at
