Have your say

A BUSINESSWOMAN who helped secure the long-term financial position of a trust that acts as a charitable social landlord has been nominated for an award. 

Anne Taylor, the chief executive of Thorngate Churcher Trust in Gosport, is one of three on the shortlist of the Making a Difference Award in the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards. 

Anne was short-listed for her work at Thorngate where she oversees an organisation with a turnover in excess of £2m, with 80 employees, more than 120 warden-supported sheltered flats and a 44-bed care home.

Anne said: ‘I’m delighted to have been nominated for this prestigious award. The trust celebrates its 150th anniversary this year so to feature on the short-list in such a milestone year is an added bonus.’ 

Anne joined Thorngate Churcher Trust in 2011. 

The winners will be announced in December.​​​​​​​
