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 Dad Stuart and 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!
Claire Smart
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.
