Founder of abuse charity to take over at community fund
A new chairman has been appointed for the Ashford-based Kent Community Foundation (KCF).
Tim Bull, who was born and raised in Kent, became the new chairman of KCF after Lady Colgrain stepped down after nearly 12 years in the role.
The KCF is now in its 16th year and manages over 70 funds, helping to provide a source of income for charities in Kent.
The foundation distributes between £1.5 million and £2 million a year to small charities in the county.
Mr Bull has been a trustee and the vice chairman of KCF for several years.
Previously, he worked for Saga and, alongside his wife, set up the Brook Trust – a charity that helps support survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.
Josephine McCartney, chief executive of the KCF said: “Kent as a county has a number of very active philanthropists whom we work with and we are very grateful to them for their ongoing support.”
