Les Amis seeks new trustees as hotel transformation continues

Friday 10 June 2022


A local charity dedicated to empowering local people with learning disabilities is on the hunt for new board members and trustees as it moves forward with ambitious plans to transform the former Hampshire Hotel.

Made possible by a significant donation, Les Amis' future facility will be the first of its kind to offer a higher level of residential nursing care to people with Down’s Syndrome and other learning disabilities who have nursing or special care needs, including those with early onset dementia.

New trustee Chris Moulder is among those calling for others to support the charity.

He retired last year as senior partner at audit and tax services firm RSM, replacing Mark Jones who served as a trustee for nearly a decade, and is hoping his 40 years of experience will be useful in helping to meet the challenges of funding major projects.

“There are also significant challenges in making sure that there is a proper level of funding to meet the needs of people with learning disabilities,” Mr Moulder noted.

“I hope my contribution helps to achieve the goal of ensuring long-term care needs of islanders are met. It’s an exciting time to be working with this fantastic organisation that supports a community of absolute heroes.”

Shaun Findlay, Les Amis’ Managing Director, added: “All of the people who serve on our Board of Directors and Trustees have considerable experience working across the various business sectors and organisations in Jersey, but we are always looking to add to that team. 

“I would like to express my thanks to Mark Jones, a dedicated colleague whose wide range of skills were a great benefit to our organisation for several years.

“Without people like Mark, we would not be able to deliver the services that many people in the island need.”
