Caroline Silke

Caroline was elected to the Board of Trustees in June 2014 at our AGM having previously served as a co-opted Trustee.

I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in my mid 20s, after falling very ill and being hospitalised.  At the time, I'd barely heard of the condition and found Crohn's & Colitis UK a great source of support and information at a traumatic time.

My work background is in the fields of charity fundraising and corporate responsibility.  I have been fortunate enough to lead teams at organisations such as Cancer Research UK and Tesco, and currently work as a consultant.

Crohn's & Colitis UK is a fantastic charity which I am proud to be involved with.  I hope through my role as Trustee I can make even a small difference to the lives of those affected by these life changing diseases.
