Local charity Notts County Foundation has announced the appointment of Jordan Worthington and Meena Hanspal to its board of trustees.
Jordan, who was recently promoted to Head of Commercial at Notts County Football Club, joins having been a key member of staff at the club since 2018, having previously spent over 10 years working at Nottingham Forest covering roles in marketing, public relations, and ticketing.
Jordan said “I have always had a great appreciation for the work the Foundation have provided for the local community throughout the vast array of programmes that are facilitated throughout the year. Looking from the outside in, I can see the fantastic progression that is being made and I’m delighted that I can now become further involved in the charity that I, and fellow supporters, have strong ties with.
“Within my newfound role as a trustee, I am committed to further strengthening the link with Notts County Football Club and forging collaborations with Notts County Foundation partners.”
The charity’s second appointment is Meena Hanspal, who has worked within the financial sector for over twenty years, taking up roles within human resources and fraud investigation. In search of a new career direction, Meena launched her own small business ‘The Vegetarian Rasoi’, using local produce and suppliers with a core ethos around sustainability and zero waste in 2017.
Quoting her passion for serving local charities and community groups, Meena is also a trustee with Her Lohri, an organisation that supports women and girls that have been subject to abuse or abandonment. Meena also operates as volunteer coordinator at Guru Nanak’s Mission, an organisation that provides hot meals and food parcels to the homeless and vulnerable families in Nottingham.
Meena said “I am excited to have joined the Foundation as a community trustee. I've seen what a difference it makes when communities rally and work together as one. The Foundation provide an excellent vehicle for this to happen, and I want to help utilise my experience to support, educate and inspire as many people as possible within the community.”
Sam Crawford, Head of Business Development at Notts County Foundation, said: “We are so pleased to welcome Jordan and Meena to the board of trustees. Jordan’s strategic operational knowledge and his key understanding of the football industry, as well as Meena’s valuable experience in working within the local community, will be a huge asset to the board. I look forward to working collaboratively with both of them to make further progress for Notts County Foundation.”
