“We have a very ambitious year ahead with plans to help the socially isolated, to tackle poverty and to work with local organisations to empower people to gain new skills and advise them where we can. We are excited for the year ahead and want to spread a culture of compassion and kindness. I cannot wait to help Alan achieve these aims”
