Jenny Hopkins, an associate director in Corporate Finance at Grant Thornton in Leeds, explains her involvement in a Yorkshire outreach charity for the homeless.
I’ve been a trustee and treasurer of Simon on the Streets for almost 18 months now. I first got involved when a colleague, who was the former treasurer, was looking for a replacement as he was emigrating to Canada. Sport has been a big part of my life, particularly playing hockey, and I felt it was time to give something back.
Also, having spent most of my adult life in Yorkshire after attending Leeds Metropolitan University, I was keen to do something which would have an impact on the local community.
