#TrusteesWeek Daniel Crandon’s story

Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.


Being a trustee involves taking on significant responsibilities and time commitments and the role is almost always unpaid


Trustees Week is a fantastic opportunity to thank your trustees for the work that they do.

As part of this, we’re giving organisations the chance to have a governance health check, and catching up with Trustees themselves to tell their story.


This is Daniel Cradon’s story why he’s a Trustee

How long have you been a trustee and why did you decide to become one?

I founded the project along with some colleagues back in 2019. It’s always something I’ve been passionate about; helping those who need it most. 


You recently won the Trustee of the Year Award at the Torfaen Community & Volunteer Awards, tell us a little about that

To be honest, it was a massive surprise. But such an honour to be recognised for the hard work that not just I, but all the team, put in to making High Street Fitness and Wellbeing what it is today. There were some brilliant people nominated, so to win was just brilliant. 


What would you say to people thinking of becoming a trustee?

Do it! Give back to the community, do it within a field you’re passionate and interested in and you’ll never look back. 


Tell us how people can get involved at High Street Fitness
