New appointment to Shetland Charitable Trust
The latest addition to the Shetland Charitable Trust is the Rev Tom Macintyre, who was appointed as a trustee on Thursday and replaces Stephen Morgan.
Mr Macintyre’s appointment brings the charitable trust up to its full complement of 15.
He said that since coming to Shetland eight years ago, he has been involved in the life of the church as a minister of the Church of Scotland and felt he could contribute to the charitable trust.
He said: “Since coming here I’ve taken a strong interest in the community and economic life of Shetland.
“I think the formation [of the trust] of having independent trustees with a variety of backgrounds and professions as well as elected members gives a broad spectrum of contributions for the Shetland community.”
The charitable trust’s chairman is Bobby Hunter, with councillor Jonathan Wills as vice-chairman.
Other councillor trustees are convener Malcolm Bell, Allison Duncan, Robert Henderson, Andrea Manson, Drew Ratter and Amanda Westlake.
The remaining trustees are Keith Massey, James Smith, Ian Napier, together with three recent appointments in the form of Tom Morton, Peter Malcolmson and Andrew Cooper.
