Trustee Spotlight: Nick Ebbeck

Nick Ebbeck is the newest of our trustees and we are lucky to have him, Nick has spent most of his career working in Human Resources, mainly in the UK and Australia!

He has also travelled extensively for work and has held many roles over this time, mainly in the compensation area, for national and international companies.

Nick is visually impaired and began losing his sight in his twenties. When not playing cricket, more on that below, he spends his time with his wife and two young daughters and enjoys general fitness, travel and gardening.

There is no doubt that Nicks favourite sport is cricket!

Not only does Nick play cricket whenever he can, but now assists with the running of the two Metro cricket teams. He is a passionate believer in how sport can improve the confidence, wellbeing and lives of blind and visually impaired people.
