Richard Lockwood became aware of The Society and its work when we were chosen as Charity of The Year 2013 by The October Club.

Richard was very impressed with our Chief Executive Ava Easton and the Society's work, so much so that he had agreed to mentor, offer guidance and help us network, opening doors to help us transform our future.

Richard has over fifty years experience in the financial services industry equally split between broking and fund management.

He latterly set up a fund management business which was ultimately sold and half the proceeds used to establish the Lockwood Family Foundation, the three trustees being himself, his wife Lesley and his daughter, Rebecca.
