Stephen Read is the Treasurer of RSPCA Mid Norfolk and North Suffolk Branch. He has overall accountability for the finances and it could be good news that he is a chartered accountant. He has held various executive finance roles across East Anglia over the years although he is not local. He is from a Lincolnshire farming family and whilst his family had many animals when he was younger, the farm is now purely arable.
“We’ve always been a cat family and our current companion is Slinky, a large black feline who’s size belies the fact that he’s a true ‘scaredy cat’. At sixteen years of age he’s now entitled to take it easy. What do I bring to the Branch? Well, aside from finance and governance experience I am keen to push the Branch to do more, particularly to promote education and awareness – in the long term I truly believe that will reduce the number of animals that need our attention and that is a good thing.”Stephen Read
