At the end of what has been an unforgettable centenary year for veterans’ charity Erskine, chairman Andrew Robertson will pass the mantle to his successor and fellow trustee Robin Crawford. Robin joined the Erskine Board of Trustees in 2007 and chairs the Erskine Audit Committee. Speaking of his appointment Robin said: "“Erskine has continued over such a long period by adapting to ensure that its mission remains relevant to the needs of veterans. My focus will be on maintaining the excellent record of care of which Erskine is justifiably proud, while ensuring that we consider the emerging needs of current veterans.”
