Meet The Team
Chair of Trustees
Jackie was born and raised in Bristol and despite working in many countries as a leader and marketer in various industries, always kept her base close to this city.
She is married, with two children just out of their teens. Jackie really looks forward to seeing what experience she can bring to All-Aboard – and looks forward to meeting many of you soon.
As a successful marketing executive, Jackie will be sharing her expertise with us to enable All-Aboard to reach more populations in our community and help our Centre become more accessible on social media platforms.
Tim joined All-Aboard as the Chair of Trustees in 2014. Tim has played a considerable part in the development of Bristol.
After becoming a chartered surveyor, he became a partner to a successful Bristol-based firm at the age of 23; which lead to him becoming the UK Board Director and Regional Managing Director – ultimately responsible for bringing 20,000 jobs into Bristol by convincing large companies to relocate to Bristol.
When Tim retired he remained business-active as a director for five companies and gave generous amounts of time and expertise to multiple charities, including setting up his own charitable grant.
He is also a keen sailor and is passionate about supporting disadvantaged children, making him a great asset to All-Aboard.
Simon is a retired accountant who was the West region senior audit partner at Pricewaterhouse Coopers. He is a lifelong sailor who has raced dinghies since his childhood and also has significant offshore experience including an Atlantic crossing.
Simon joined the Trustees of All-Aboard early in 2016 and is passionate about the benefits the organisation brings to the groups of people who use its services. In addition to his role at All-Aboard, Simon is a trustee of Bristol Music Trust and of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and is president of Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club.
Simon brings skills and knowledge in finance and accountancy following his 30 year career in accountancy.
Gill has been involved with Sailability since 2004 and worked as the Administrator of All-Aboard from its start in 2013.
She is now stepping back from her admin role to take a Trustee role. Having seen how Sailability has changed lives and perceptions, her interests are making opportunities available to all to participate in watersports and overcoming any physical or emotional barriers experienced by people with disabilities.
She is also a Trustee of the Scobell Trust.
Peter is a practicing solicitor and keen gig rower competing regularly in races around the South West.
Peter studied in Bristol and has worked here since he completed his training. Over the last 30 years he has developed strong links with the professional and voluntary sectors across the city having served as trustee of a number of local charities including Clifton Children’s Society and The Centre for Adoption Support and Education and as volunteer legal advisor to local groups including KWADS.
Peter is an enthusiastic advocate for widening participation in sport, particularly amongst those groups who are excluded or feel themselves to be excluded from participation.
