New trustee appointments at iprovision

The Chartered Institute of Public Relations benevolent fund, iprovision, has strengthened its board with the appointment of three new trustees – Lizzie D’Angelo, Baroness Olly Grender and James Harkness.

Announcing the appointments, iprovision chair and former CIPR president Tony Bradley said: “A number of long-serving trustees reached the end of their term at Christmas, and after carrying out an extensive skills audit we had a very clear picture of what we were looking for in our quest to take the charity to the next level. The iprovision board is delighted at the calibre of these three new appointments, which will help us to achieve our vision for 2019 of increasing the number of CIPR members we are able to support – as well as exploring new ways of encouraging donations to help us to carry out our vital work.”

  • Lizzie D’Angelo is deputy marketing director at Tommy's – the UK’s largest charity funding research into the causes of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth.  She has particular experience in fundraising, campaigns and digital communications. Prior to joining Tommy’s she was head of communications at The Sick Children’s Trust and before that senior communications officer for the Anthony Nolan cancer charity.
  • Baroness Olly Grender entered Parliament in autumn 2013. She spent a year at No10 as the deputy director of communications for the Government, where she co-ordinated the Liberal Democrats communications operation on behalf of Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
