A Partner at Guildford law firm DMH Stallard has been appointed a trustee and company secretary of Cherry Trees, a charity that helps children with complex disabilities.
Cathryn Culverhouse, who is part of DMH’s dispute resolution team in the Guildford office, has long been a supporter of the local charity which provides respite care for children whose disabilities include learning, physical and sensory impairments.
Cherry Trees is a lifeline for the families of more than 100 children and young people who are regularly cared for there.
Following her appointment at the Cherry Trees trustee meeting and AGM on Wednesday (September 13), Cathryn said: “I have supported fundraising activities for Cherry Trees through DMH Stallard for a number of years now, as they are our chosen local charity in the Guildford office.
“They are a wonderful charity and a much-needed resource in the local community providing invaluable respite care and support to both the children they help and their families.
“I am thrilled that I have been appointed trustee and company secretary and I cannot wait to get involved and to be a part of the great work that they do.”
DMH Stallard’s support for Cherry Trees over the years has included a variety of fundraising activities, painting and DIY at its Guildford house and sponsorship of events.
Heath Williams, Chairman of the Board of Trustess at Cherry Trees said:
“We are delighted to welcome Cathryn on to the Board of Trustees. Our relationships with Cathryn and DMH Stallard go from strength to strength and we know that their support, alongside Cathryn’s professional and personal expertise, will help guide Cherry Trees as we look to support families all across Surrey”.
