Bright Red’s board of trustees is made up of a diverse mix of business professionals, nursing staff and haematologists. Appointed by invite only, the trustees meet 4 times a year to plan for the future and decide how the charitable funds are spent.

Supporting the trustees we have a group of Ambassadors. Our Ambassadors are either patients or relatives, and are committed to using their own experience to help our fight against blood cancer.

This set up provides a balanced mix of individuals who ensure funding goes to where it is needed most.

Ashley Elliott is our charity manager she can be contacted on 0191 269 5467 or via
