Chris Spragg – Chairman

Chris has lived in Surrey for over 30 years, and in Redhill since 2000. He has worked in health and social care, and more particularly the voluntary sector, for over 40 years. Chris has worked as a psychiatric nurse, residential care social worker, with children and adults with physical and sensory disabilities and with learning difficulties and with the elderly. In the latter part of his career he was a senior manager in a national children’s charity and led a major modernisation programme. Currently he works part-time, providing project management and consultancy for voluntary sector organisations, and since early 2018 has been a volunteer and trustee at MCFT. He is a keen, amateur photographer and enjoys pleasant (not too demanding!) country walks.

Mark Brunt – Trustee

Mark was one of the founding trustees and has seen the trust grow from its earliest stages, before the opening of the first facility through to where it is today.
Mark is a Programme Manager by profession and is an elected borough councillor for Merstham on Reigate & Banstead Council.

After many years and much hard work, Mark Brunt is stepping down as Chair of MCFT. We are really grateful for all he has done to support our charity.

Robert Gardner – Trustee
Ian White – Trustee

Ian, along with his parents, moved to Merstham from London in 1956. Ian still has family living on the estate.

Ian worked as an I.T. Technical Support Specialist/Customer Support for over 25 years and is now semi-retired. He enjoys studying local history and working within the Merstham community.

Karen Lee- Trustee

Karen has a passion for issues relating to mental health and facilitates a weekly mental well-being group at MCFT. Karen has trained to deliver the ‘Wheel of Well-Being’ and aims to ensure that MCFT put mental health at the heart of their service delivery
