John Hibbs Charity CEO

John Hibbs

Founder & CEO
John Hibbs founded The Hibbs Lupus Trust in October 2011 and is responsible for setting the charity's strategic aims, its overall management and leadership.

John has built corporate partnerships both locally and nationally with organisations to both raise funds and awareness for the charity.

He regularly speaks at events and gives talks about lupus and the work of the Hibbs Lupus Trust to local business and organisations.

John has raised the profile of lupus through the charity's use of social media and its website; he has gained the support of MPs. In 2009, Sarah Brown hosted a Downing Street reception to help John raise awareness. This was the first Downing Street reception to have been organised through Twitter!

Always up for a challenge, particularly if raising funds for the charity, John has completed The London Marathon on three occasions and cycled 200 miles in 19 hours from Lupus Way in Liverpool to Lupus Street in London. This is in addition to taking part in several half marathons, walks and fun runs.

In 2013, John was recognised for his outstanding contribution to Staffordshire when he was shortlisted for the Staffordshire Volunteer of the Year Award and has regularlly been listed in the Top 30 Social CEOs for his work with The Hibbs Lupus Trust.
