The Patchwork Foundation is delighted to announce that we have two new Trustees joining our Board in February.
Poppy Mitchell-Rose and Sheikh Aliur Rahman will bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to complement our current Trustees and will benefit our work considerably.
Poppy Mitchell-Rose is a Partner at Freuds, having previously worked in Parliament, Downing Street and HM Treasury as a Special Advisor to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, working alongside the Prime Minister, Cabinet and Shadow Cabinet. She delivered media strategies, campaigns, and global business relations, including international trade missions to promote the UK overseas.
Poppy welcomed her appointment saying “I’m delighted to take on this new role. Patchwork is a fantastic organisation run by a great team – I’m looking forward to helping it thrive and grow.”
Sheikh Aliur Rahman is the Chief Executive of the London Tea Exchange. Prior to joining the London Tea Exchange he worked for a leading investment company in the City and has extensive senior management experience. He still acts as a senior advisor to a number of high profile clients on major developments across London and recent projects include delivering three of the tallest residential towers in Europe. Aliur currently holds various advisory roles at a local, regional and national level and remains active in urban regeneration programmes across Europe and Asia.
Aliur said “having supported Patchwork for a number of years, I’m really excited to be joining the trustee board and hope I can support the foundation on the next stage of its journey so that we can support even more young people in the future”
