Volunteers & Trustees

Doing it For Dan raises all its own funds with the help of selfless volunteers and amazing people doing crazy things for sponsorship – we couldn’t Support Children in Sport without that help, enthuiasm and encouragement.

The day to day running of the charity is undertaken by four trustees, they are:-

Helen Lucas
(Chair of Trustees and Dan’s Mum)
Helen, alongside Daniel’s extended family, founded the charity in 2016 in Dan’s memory.  Having watched Dan’s love of playing sport it seemed a natural choice to set up a charity that would help other children achieve their sporting ambitions.
Helen spearheads the charity.  She is the ‘ideas’ person and keeps everyone else in the team busy!  She is also a solicitor, Mum to Dan’s brothers Robbie and Noah and an expert gin-taster!

Michelle Mackay

Michelle looks after Process and Governance and attempts to wrestle the charity’s activity into a plan and get the others to follow it – she doesn’t always succeed.  She runs her own Professional Development business and in her spare time loves putting up shelves.
