Margaret Sills

Margaret lives in London and Hutton (Somerset). She has been a trustee of several charities and currently serves on the committee of the Hutton-Dabaso Twinning Association, having visited Dabaso in 2009, as well as joining the Akili Trust as a trustee in 2015.

Education, Gender and Inequalities are high on her list of interests. Her career has included teaching at school and university level and extensive work in the Health Promotion sector both in the UK and internationally.

Now retired, she continues with triathlon coaching and competing, gardening and running a couple of holiday cottages as well as maintaining her interest in Kenya where she also has a cousin who has proved a helpful link! Occasional whacky excursions such as cycling across the Himalayas from Lhasa to Kathmandu via Everest base camp (2012) mean she has a good excuse to raise some sponsorship for bursaries for Dabaso school students.
