The current Trustees are:

Zoha Shah (Union President and Chair of the Trustee Board)

Chris Dow (Vice President and Trustee)

Andy Blunt (External Trustee)

Laura Edmonds (Student Trustee)

My name is Laura Edmonds and I’m currently studying Forensic Psychology at Leeds Trinity University. For fourteen years previous, I worked as a children’s palliative care nurse and then left four years ago to become a children’s author. I have 12 books published titled ‘Building Memories’, and are very excited to say I have 136 books awaiting relaunch. My reasons for being a trustee are to make sure decisions are made ethically and with the students interests at the heart. I hope to be able to make some positive changes to make your time at Leeds Trinity the most fruitful possible. 


Jonathan Glazzard (External Trustee)

Hi I’m Jonathan Glazzard, a trustee of the LTU Student Union. I took on this role because I believe that higher education should have a positive impact on students' social, psychological and physical development in addition to facilitating their academic development. I am deeply committed to working in partnership with students and I believe that students benefit significantly from a rounded university experience. 


Fun fact: I own a Saint Bernard called Sebastian!
