Matt Quaife and Dave Terrace join CWB Board of Trustees

Cricket Without Boundaries are delighted to confirm that we have appointed two new Trustees; Dr Matthew Quaife, Assistant Professor in Health Economics at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and David Terrace, long-standing CWB volunteer and charity-governance expert.

Matt QuaifeMatt’s research at LSHTM is directly applicable to CWB; he models the impact and cost-effectiveness of interventions to reduce the spread and burden of infectious diseases, focusing on sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV in sub-Saharan Africa having recently completed projects on HIV prevention among adolescent girls and young women in Uganda and South Africa, HIV testing in South Africa, and STIs and transactional sex in the Gambia.

As a member of the CWB Trustee Board, Matt will provide vital public health expertise, offering evidence, contacts, and advice on health messaging and evaluation. He will be well positioned to guide our volunteers to explore how to optimise CWB’s health promotion messages around HIV in sub-Saharan Africa, consider how CWB can strengthen it’s role in preventing and treating non-communicable disease, including those arising from sedentary behaviour, and mental health, and strengthen the monitoring and evaluation systems already in place at the charity.

Away from Public Health, Matt is a keen cricketer and fan, turning out most weeks during the season for Dulwich CC, and following England at home and abroad recently in South Africa and Sri Lanka. Welcome to the team Matt!

Dave has been a volunteer at Cricket Without Boundaries since 2010, and alongside regular volunteer projects has held roles ranging from Cameroon Country Manager through to monitoring and evaluation, fundraising and trustee liaison. He will be calling on his knowledge and experience of the charity in his new role as interim Chair.

In his current role at the Mercers’ Company he works with around 100 charities of various sizes looking at their governance, finances and strategy. Dave hopes to use some of the experience gained to ensure ‘back end’ charity work is done to allow CWB’s excellent volunteers to do what they do best: delivery.

Dave said:

Dave Terrace“I’m delighted to be able to chair the charity that has changed my life and I’ve spent 10 years volunteering for. I am keen to use the 8 years of charity experience in service delivery, policy and grant making. This is my first role as Chair, so I will a lot to learn but it is an honour to be part of an incredibly talented group of trustees and delivery volunteers.”

The cricketing exploits of David Terrace are well documented in the CWB annals of history, most famously his 40-odd against an England Women select XI in 2014, and he continues to play club cricket when time allows.
