Turn to Starboard is delighted to announce the appointment of two new members to our office in Falmouth.
Nadia Hughes-Penzer has been appointed as Events and Fundraising Coordinator and will oversee key events held by the charity each year.
Nadia has ran an online retail business with her husband for the last 14 years and decided to join the charity after being inspired by the service it offers.
She said: “I’ve always wanted to work for a charity and when I found out about Turn to Starboard I was completely overwhelmed. I feel very strongly about how important it is to look after those that have put themselves on the line for the rest of us and the guys and girls that have been affected by military operations deserve to be able to come back and be able to lead as normal and happy lives as possible. Being just a small part of something that helps to achieve this is humbling, beautiful and rewarding.”
Nadia is joined in the office by Marie Harris in a Communications Support role.
Marie runs her own consultancy business and has many years of communications experience along with a Public Relations and Media degree. She will use her skills and passion for sailing to help promote the Round Britain Challenge 2017 which sets sail in August.
She said: “It feels great to be working with an organisation that helps military personnel affected by operations and rewarding to see so many individuals gain new skills and sailing qualifications. I hope I can play a part in raising awareness about the challenges some veterans can face after leaving the Service life.”
