Black Prince Trust announces new CEO, chair and trustees

The Black Prince Trust (BPT), a not-for-profit community Hub based in Kennington, Lambeth, has announced a new CEO, Chair and three new Trustees.

The BPT Community Hub, whose primary aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of the local community will welcome Richard Joyce as CEO on 6 June 2022. Joyce is known to Black Prince Trust, having been a member of the Advisory Board for several years. He has worked in the sport for development sector for over 15 years - most recently with Greenhouse Sports and prior to that the national cricket charity Chance to Shine.

He will succeed Kirk Harrison, who will transition to an executive chair role to focus on strategic matters at the Trust.

Joyce said: “I’m honoured to be taking the role of CEO at The Black Prince Trust to build on the fantastic work done by Kirk Harrison before me. Having worked alongside the team for a number of years, having also lived in the borough, BPT means a great deal to me and I am committed to our common vision to offer first-class sports and education facilities to the local community and schools, along with delivering key social outcomes.”

The current chair, Chris Christou will remain on the board as a trustee, whilst three new trustees will replace those who have ended their term. Joining the board are Rochelle Mortier, Daniel Noruwa and Sarina Da Silva - all of whom will bring “considerable experience and expertise” to the board.

The Black Prince Trust says that it is sorry to see James Bellis, James Boyson and Jen Mosley step down after seven years at the Trust and thank them for all their efforts in transforming Black Prince Trust in the period since 2015.

Harrison added: “This is an exciting and transformational time for The Black Prince Trust and I look forward to taking our mission of improving the health and wellbeing of our fantastic local community within a welcoming and safe environment to an even higher level.”
