Charles Wilson, CEO of Booker, has become the new president of Sweet Charity.
Sweet Charity is the charity for the confectionery industry, and Wilson started his 12-month term on September 1.
Previous president Dave Pogson, sales director of Cadbury, will formally hand over to Wilson at the Candy Rocks Party held at the Hard Rock Café on September 16.
Wilson said: “I am honoured to take up the role as president for Sweet Charity for the coming year. My aims are simple: to build on the great work that the charity already does and to help grow the funds raised last year to ensure that Sweet Charity can continue to help those from our industry who need support.
“More than 1,500 people were helped last year, which is a fantastic achievement, and I am looking forward to helping raise the funds needed for this worthy cause.”
