Chris Oleksy joins the Board of Trustees

UITC are delighted to announce that Chris Oleksy has joined the Board of Trustees. Chris has been an active supporter and volunteer at UITC, therefore we were very pleased when we approached him and he accepted our invitation to join us.

Chris writes "Im delighted to be joining the board of trustees at UITC and hope that I can offer some assistance on the already excellent work put In by Caroline, Lee and Russ over the last few years. Victoria Park has in the last six months seen a big refurbishment, with work still ongoing to improve the facilities even more and offer a great base for the local community.

Before we faced these difficult times for everyone, Victoria Park was in regular use, as a Multi Sport and Holiday club, the Host of the Blue Light Cup, a tournament bringing together our fantastic emergency services, and the Hereford Men’s Mental Health Charity. With Victoria Park offering a home for these great causes, I would like to thank Caroline, Lee and Russ for giving me the opportunity to give something back to the community.

Lastly, I would like to say, I hope everyone is staying safe during these uncertain times, and hopefully see you all as soon as possible when Victoria Park reopens."
