After working with Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance for the last year and a half, Catherine McLellan, our Accounts Administrator, is moving on to a new post. Known fondly in the office as Kitty, Catherine has rejuvenated our Accounts department and ensured that everything runs smoothly and professionally. In addition to her excellent work with the Charityâ€™s accounts, Catherine has attended events, including last years â€œWalking On Waterâ€ as part of the Head Office Team (we lost!) and she looked stunning at our Mad Hatter's Spring Ball. Catherine seems to have the ability to make it rain every time she goes camping but is always happy and laughing!
We will all miss her at the Charity, but we wish her well in her new position.Â
Taking over from Kitty is Trudy Spikesman. Â A self confessed â€œgeekâ€, Trudy loves everything to do with accounting, systems and the internet. Â Her passion lies in seeing people and businesses achieve real results, in having a hand in smoothing the bumps and easing the road to success. Â As well as her work with the charity, Trudy also runs her own business services company supporting start-ups and small businesses in setting up and maintaining their back office functions. Trudy is a keen Volkswagen enthusiast and has restored a number of old VWs (beetles, campers and a pickup truck), her favourite being a bright red soft top baja called â€œPeteâ€! Â Â We are very excited to have Trudy working with us and look forward to introducing her to the HIOWAA Family.
