From November 6 to 10, Trustees' Week serves as an annual celebration of the unsung heroes who steer charitable organisations toward their missions. This year's theme, 'Many voices. Working together. With purpose,' spotlights the collective power of trustees, so we are taking the opportunity to shine a light on the remarkable Board of Trustees at REACT.
