Birmingham Christmas Shelter has a board of volunteer trustees, whose role is to manage the charity throughout the year.  There are three types of trustees:

1) Executive

A trustee who attends frequent meetings throughout the year to plan the operational aspects of the charity. Executive trustees are on duty during the entire shelter week to ensure the week is running smoothly. These are our executive trustees:

  • Steve Johal
  • Tania Johal
  • Nigel Lawrence
  • Shirley Mallon
  • Jason Woodward
  • Jim Crabtree
  • Claire Jones
  • Kerrie Lo

2) Non-Executive 

Non-executive trustees attend frequent meetings throughout the year but are not on duty during the shelter week.  Instead, their field of expertise and experience are given to aid the planning of the shelter and the general running of the charity.  Our non-executive trustees are: 

  • Philippe Bonnet
  • Lee Harris
  • Marcia Dixon
  • Julie Ashford-Martin
  • Chris Woodford
  • Steve Love

All trustees are DBS checked and first aid trained. If you would like more information about how to become a trustee,  please contact
