Chris Stannard took up his appointment as Clerk of the Campden Charities in January 2000.
He made immense contributions as Clerk, protecting and enhancing the endowments originally bequeathed by Lord and Lady Campden in the seventeenth century, and transforming the Charities’ approaches to opening up educational, employment and other opportunities for people living in the Campden Charities area of benefit. He worked with inspiration alongside staff and trustees to develop innovative ways of making more comfortable and fulfilling the lives of those living in deprivation or who have been marginalised.
Prior to joining the Campden Charities, Chris had worked in the RBK&C Education Department, supporting in particular voluntary sector organisations involved with education and young people, and had earlier been Head of Play Services for Southwark, and a Youth Worker with the Inner London Education Authority.
Chris was a talented painter and was awarded a BA (Hons) in Fine Art by Camberwell School of Art. Before that he had studied Physics at Imperial College and was awarded a BSc.
He leaves a widow, Jacqueline, daughter Megan, and son Callum.
