Raymond Donn.jpg

RAYMOND DONN

Chairman & Trustee

Married to Dianne, Raymond built one of the leading law firms in Manchester over nearly 30 years. We have convinced him to come out of retirement to chair the organisation. His experience managing people, legal knowledge, strong diplomacy, and leadership qualities, together with a relaxed down to earth approach, makes him a natural fit as chairman. His vision for this project has been the driving force for Aliya from its inception.

MICHAEL SHARP

Treasurer & Trustee

In a career in engineering consultancy, Michael gained considerable experience in project management and in the development of procedures to meet stringent regulatory requirements. His pragmatism, attention to detail and ability to envision potential pitfalls make him a natural for his role as treasurer, policy enforcer and safeguarding lead, helping to ensure that we are compliant with all statutory requirements. Much of the rest of his time is spent supporting Holocaust education and memorial, and he is an active member of South Manchester Synagogue.
