Why you’re proud to be a Trustee of Arm in Arm: Joining the Arm in Arm delegation in 2017 was a life-changing experience. I was so struckby the dichotomy of South Africa – one side of the street reflecting its economic leadershipand the other side full of corrugated shacks, the ‘legacy’ of apartheid. Most of all, I fell in love with the children – full of smiles, full of hope – and clearly benefitting from Arm in Arm’s work.
