Glenda Stokes - Executive Officer

Glenda 600x600

Combining her professional skills with a passion for community development has led to the perfect role for Glenda Stokes.

Glenda has a background in sales leadership, including seven years as advertising manager at The Gisborne Herald.

She is also passionate about giving back to her community and is involved with Hospice Tairawhiti, both on the board and in a voluntary capacity.

The mother-of-three, and new grandmother, is a person who needs to believe in what she is doing.

Glenda’s professional and voluntary work to date has helped her to build strong local networks, as well as a comprehensive understanding of how the community works and some of the challenges it faces. She is excited by community project work and can always be relied on for her energy and enthusiasm.

Glenda moved to Gisborne in 2005 and said it was like coming home. She spent the first year or so of her life living at Hick’s Bay and enjoys the sense of belonging and ownership that a close-knit community offers.

She is confident that Sunrise will make a significant difference to the people of Tairāwhiti-Gisborne and particularly likes the concept of “giving that lasts forever”.
