An organisation which supports voluntary services in North Somerset has appointed a new chief executive.

Voluntary Action North Somerset (VANS) has appointed Doreen Smith as its new chief executive.

She said: “I’ve always had a passion for volunteering.

“Working with VANS, whose main purpose is to empower and strengthen our inspiring sector, is exciting.

“It is a great feeling to know I will be working alongside such a respected and amazing team and other colleagues who are equally as enthusiastic about our sector’s ability to deliver great services and opportunities to others.”

The organisation’s current chief executive Cara MacMahon is leaving to work as an officer for the Heritage Action Zone Project.

VANS chair, Delyth Lloyd-Evans, said she is ‘delighted’ to welcome Doreen to VANS and added: “We also say a farewell to Cara who has done a magnificent job.”
