Our Board of Trustees are all volunteers. They are responsible for the governance of the charity, overseeing and guiding the work of the Chief Executive and Senior Management Team.
Prior to his retirement from full-time working in May 2020 David Rennie worked for 24 years as a Criminal Law Barrister, both defending and prosecuting cases in the Crown Court. In 2001 he was appointed as a Circuit Judge and presided over serious criminal trials in Sussex and at the Old Bailey for the next 19 years. He offered work experience to a large number of students and undergraduates over those years as they contemplated a possible career in the Law.
He lives in Hove with his wife who is a Clinical Psychologist. They have 2 sons who are now both at university. He is a keen amateur film maker and enjoys the complexities of film editing. He enjoys long country walks, spending time with his extended family in Ireland and maintaining French as a second language.
It was only when a very close friend died in a Sussex hospice 13 years ago that he experienced first-hand the extraordinary work that is done by such organisations. He promised himself that he would offer his services once he retired from full-time work and is very pleased that St Barnabas Hospices have been prepared to give him the chance to make a contribution.
