East Cheshire Eye Society is an independent charity which relies solely on funding to support its activities and is run by a board of voluntary trustees, some of whom have a sight impairment themselves. As the trustees mean so much to the charity, we wanted to get to know them a little bit better and share with you their own experience as a trustee.

Meet Cat Costigan

Cat has lived in Macclesfield since 1999, when she bought her first home. Her children have grown up in Macclesfield, attending Whirley Primary and then Fallibroome Academy.

Cat became interested in the East Cheshire Eye Society because it offered support to her after her eldest son suffered sudden eyesight loss when he was eight years old (he’s now 22).

She is keen to use the skills from her professional roles in both finance and HR leadership to benefit the society. Cat also wishes to raise the profile of the impact of sight loss on young people in our community.
