Ceri Evans, 1961 - 2014
From the Transformation Trust’s inception, Ceri was a huge supporter of the work of the Transformation Trust, passionately believing in the organisation’s work to “level up” the opportunities available to children from more challenged backgrounds. He gave hours of his time in support of the team, helping make new connections and developing new programmes. His creative spirit and determination that the Trust should succeed was ever-present, and without him, the Trust simply would not have been able to reach the hundreds of schools that we work with and the tens of thousands of children who have benefited. We owe Ceri so very much and he will be forever missed.
