The Trustees

Jacqueline Natt: Chair I was a volunteer at Marah for several years before becoming a trustee and now chair of trustees. I am passionately committed to helping the homeless and vulnerable of the Stroud area and appreciate Marah’s welcoming and non-judgemental attitude to people who are struggling. I think we offer a unique service to our guests.

Jim Coubrough: Treasurer I joined Marah as a volunteer soon after moving here from Dorset.  As a committed believer in Jesus Christ, I had previously helped people with their financial problems as a volunteer with Christians Against Poverty.  Marah is a lifeline for many people.  As a trustee and now treasurer, I’m glad I can do a little to help.

Tina Cutler: Secretary Looking for purpose and wanting to support people in challenging situations, I became a volunteer at the drop-in. I believe that what we do is really valued and worthwhile and so I accepted an invitiation to become a trustee in 2018. I love the way that the drop-in is  open to everyone and that our guests find our food and services really helpful.
