February has seen some changes at the Excelsior Trust, including the appointment of a new Trustee and the departure of a valuable team member.

The Trust is delighted that Ron Mitchell has agreed to become a Trustee. Ron has played a pivotal role over the past few years and is a much valued contributor to the work of the Trust.

We are sorry to announce that Jenny White is stepping down from her role as Ship’s Husband & Welfare Officer due to family commitments. We would like to offer our sincere thanks to Jenny for all the hard work and commitment she has put into the Trust – ensuring those fortunate enough to be on board Excelsior during the past few seasons have been superbly victualled and well informed in advance of their trip!
