Meet the trustees
Margaret Evison is Mark’s mother and Executive Trustee of the Foundation. She is a consultant clinical psychologist with a long experience of developing support services within the NHS and has always worked closely with patients from all backgrounds and in many situations. She is very interested in individual development.
Elizabeth Evison is Mark’s sister: they were very close. She is quieter and more bookish, much less prone to physical exertion. However Mark and the Foundation have since inspired her to more adventurous pursuits, such as running a half marathon for the Foundation in 2010. She is now a civil servant.
Liam Harris is Deputy head of sixth form at Burntwood Academy, where he teaches Science to Years 7-11 and Chemistry to Years 10-13. He studied Biochemistry at the University of Portsmouth before completing his PGCE at Roehampton University. In 2009 he started teaching at Burntwood school, working his way from a classroom teacher to a pastoral middle leader. Liam is a keen sportsman, being active within a local rugby club – previously Kings College Hospital First XV captain – and regularly cycling in the local area. He has completed a cycle from London to Cardiff and is hopeful of completing more long distance cycle rides.
Sholto Moger went to Dulwich College Prep School and Charterhouse with Mark and has known him for much of his life. He grew up in South London, but now lives and works in Devon as the partner in charge of Land Management for Strutt & Parker’s Exeter office. He and Mark went on various holidays together to Cornwall, Scotland and the continent. They spent weeks planning trips and in 2005 walked 560 miles across the north of Spain in 18 days to raise money for ‘For Dementia’. They were planning a second trip on Offa’s Dyke for the summer of 2009. Sholto loves the outdoors and like Mark is always keen to explore his mental and physical limits.
Dr Joseph Spence is the Master of Dulwich College. He was formerly Headmaster of Oakham School (2002-09) and a teacher of history and politics at Eton College where he was Master in College from 1992-2002. Joe serves on the governing body of a number of schools and trusts, including the Blackbird Academy Trust, the Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey, Windlesham House School and the Inspiring Futures Foundation, a social enterprise dedicated to the provision of first class careers advice to young people from all backgrounds. He is also the Co-Director of the Southwark Schools Learning Partnership.
Ian Macauslan first met Mark on the football pitch aged three; they then followed one another for the next 18 years on and off through school and university. Mark and Ian spent many holidays together, including in Mark’s last summer when they backpacked around Morocco, climbed mountains and drank mint tea. Ian is a consultant in social policy with Oxford Policy Management and advises on international development issues.
All trustees are unpaid.
