Charity appoints finance director

Alison Elvey

Penzance-based charity Trelya has appointed Alison Elvey to the newly-created role of finance and administration director.

Trelya helps children, young people and families from deprived backgrounds break the cycle of social exclusion.

Elvey will be responsible for managing the day-to-day financial administration, grant administration, HR as well as marketing, web site and social media.

Sharon Rich, Trelya’s executive director, explained: “I would like to welcome Alison to the Trelya team. We have traditionally employed a part-time inhouse accountant but realised, as a small growing charity, we needed someone with experience of grant administration and project management.

“Alison brings extensive experience of working with a wide variety of organisations and a strong mix of marketing and administrations skills and will play a vital role in enabling us to deliver our business plan.”
