Wise Age Regrets to Announce Death of Director and Trustee Jane Shenton

We would like to pay tribute to Jane Shenton, who was a Director and Trustee of Wise Age.

Jane joined the board two years ago.  She was a very active member of the board, contributing significantly to fundraising and bid-writing activities, always searching for new opportunities and contributing to grant applications, which she always meticulously proofread before they were sent. She also led our drive to have a complete set of policies that complied with the requirements of the Charity Commission when we became a registered charity.

Jane had previously had a very distinguished career in the non-profit sector, with particular expertise in matters of governance and risk management.  She was previously the Deputy Executive Director at Médecins sans Frontières UK and came to Wise Age with over 25 years’ experience at senior management level in the humanitarian sector both overseas and in headquarters.

Jane will be missed by all at Wise Age who worked with her, and we would like to extend our condolences to her family and friends.
