Ian worked in the pub trade for over 35 years and is a past chairman of his local LVA. He first became a trustee of the Society of Licensed Victuallers in 1994, before becoming a Trustee of the Licensed Trade Charity. “I felt that on retiring from the trade, I could do more to help those less fortunate than I have been. I find volunteering very worthwhile, listening to people’s lives and time spent within the trade to helping them and support we can provide through the Charity Services Committee, very rewarding.”
