Tom’s Trust would like to announce its new trustee, Martin Shave. The charity is excited to have Martin on board, bringing his invaluable experience to the role at a time when Tom’s Trust is expanding its services across the UK.
Martin is an industry lead for Microsoft in the UK having worked in the IT sector for over 15 years, prior to which he worked as an accountant in practice and in the Higher Education sector. During his time at Microsoft, Martin has managed teams across a variety of industries including a number of years leading the Public Sector team which helped healthcare providers to improve their service.
In 2009, Martin’s daughter Camille was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Over the coming years, Martin and his wife Hayley set about fundraising for children with brain tumours and became one of the three contributors, along with Tom’s Trust to form the Brainbow brain tumour rehabilitation service at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
Martin lives in Suffolk with his wife Hayley and his three children, Lucia, Jude and Camille, who is now 10 years post treatment for her brain tumour and has been a beneficiary from the great work that Tom’s Trust has enabled across the East of England and other regions.
