Treasurer - Mike Snape

Background

I have lived in Winsford for forty years and have studied and worked locally throughout that time.

I have been married to Michelle since 2001 and we both work as accountants at Bennett Brooks in Northwich, where I am an Associate Director and head up the Small Business Team. This role enables me to work with many local business owners and deal with them on a face to face basis.

My role and what's important to me

My role as trustee is to help the charity meet the needs of its beneficiaries and ensuring that it meets its legal and administrative obligations. As treasurer, I am tasked with overseeing the finances of the charity, ensuring that our accounts are compliant, monitoring budgets and cash flows and making sure that we are financially secure.

As a local resident, this is an extremely important role for me and it is rewarding to see that the charity makes such a vital impact in West Cheshire.

My hobbies and interests

I am a huge lover of rock music, try and attend gigs whenever possible and have been fortunate to see some of the biggest global rock stars.

I enjoy playing the electric guitar and still have lessons in Northwich every Monday evening. In what little spare time I have, I also enjoy photography and walking my Golden Retriever, Benson.
