Davy is Cor’s older brother and was instrumental in both her recovery and setting up the charity. Having been by Cor’s side throughout her journey, supporting amputees is extremely close to his heart. Davy works with some of the Finding Your Feet Troopers on personal development and is heavily involved in the growth of the charity.

Chas is a partner in a family dental practice in Port Glasgow and has known Cor and her family since playing rugby for the Glasgow Hawks RFC with Cor’s brother Scott.
Chas was inspired to help FYF after being amazed at Cor’s resilience in the face of her adversity following her quadruple amputation in 2013. He became a Trustee when the charity was founded, and has been overwhelmed by the way Cor has used her circumstances to effect positive change in the way amputees are viewed by society.
Scott is Cor’s younger brother and partner in a top international legal company based in Dubai. He moved to Dubai in 2005, where he lives with his wife and two sons. Scott played rugby for GHK and Glasgow Hawks and captained the Hawks for the 2000 – 2001 season. He also captained Old Belvedere in Ireland, Dubai Exiles and represented the Barbarians.
Scott was in Dubai when Cor was admitted to the hospital. After a call from Davy, Scott took the first flight to Glasgow when it was thought that the doctors were keeping Corinne alive long enough for her little brother to say goodbye. Fortunately, by the time that flight landed, the ECMO team had worked a miracle and Cor was on the long road to recovery. Scott takes inspiration from the work his sister and her charity carry out on a daily basis, and helps by spreading the word overseas as well as providing invaluable legal advice.

Angela is Director of Resonance Capital, a niche asset management business company in Glasgow and is on the brain trust for TEDxGlasgow talks.
Angela met Cor through a friend and was blown away by her positivity and drive to help others whilst facing adversity herself. Angela started organising fundraisers but quickly found herself wanting to do more as she saw the reach of FYF and how much we were encouraging amputees out of isolation. This was an area Angela found especially appealing as the mental health side of physical challenges is often overlooked. She was delighted to be invited to join the Board of Trustees and finds working with the team of staff and amputees incredibly rewarding.
As well as being there with great business advice, Angela has provided Finding Your Feet with a HQ for the past 5 years. Skypark has been an excellent home for the charity and has contributed with fundraising, awareness and events.
Jan is a Broadcast Account Director for a Media Buying & Planning Agency.
She became involved with FYF after meeting Cor at WestMARC (the prosthetic & rehabilitation centre for the West of Scotland). One of Jan’s twin daughters had complications at birth which resulted in her losing one of her feet. Along with her husband David, Jan had been looking for a support group but not had any luck until they discovered FYF. Thankful for the support and encouragement FYF provides the whole family, Jan was keen to become involved with us and offer her own support as a Trustee.
As well as constantly spreading the word about our services, Jan is the admin on some of our Facebook support groups for amputees. Her daughter, Keeley, is a Junior Trooper superstar and a regular at our swimming club.
Rhona is the owner of The ER Network Ltd, a financial services company founded in 2006 and headquartered in Glasgow. Rhona worked with Corinne approximately 30 years ago. She contacted Cor after reading her story in the local press and was struck by how positive and inspiring she was. She started to fundraise on behalf of FYF shortly after and is delighted to be invited to join them as a Trustee.
Rhona has worked with the FYF team to provide valuable financial advice and she has given her time by volunteering at Ampu-Teas, allowing her to get to know the Troopers. She’s also Queen of the donation tin, currently topping our totals leaderboard!
Christine is the Dean Elect for the Faculty of Podiatric Medicine at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
Her medical background and esteem alone would make us jump at the chance to have her involved, but add to that her voluntary work with us for over three years and we’re just incredibly honoured and humbled to call her a Trustee and a friend.
