Chris joined the team in May 2018 as the newly appointed Premises and Risk Officer for the charity, predominantly in charge of Health and Safety, Fire compliance across the HQ and charity shops.
Originally from St Dennis in Cornwall, Chris left the county in 2000 to enlist into the Army, where he served in various conflicts, mostly within the Middle East where he was deployed to Iraq twice and Afghanistan three times. He also travelled to Europe and Canada on training exercises and as part of military training teams, most notable of these was when he spent a number of months working with the Special Forces Aviation team in Norway working within the arctic circle where temperatures would often be as low as -30°C. Chris left the Army in May 2018 after completing 18 years’ service finishing his military career working with a Military Intelligence unit.
When he's not in work, Chris is a DIY enthusiast and has always got multiple home projects on the go at the same time. Having a little boy keeps him very active and when he's not running around after him and the dog, you'll find him at the gym.
