It’s Trustees Week, 13-17 November, an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.
Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work.
Stuart Evans, our Chair of Trustees, said,
“Trustee Week is an annual reminder of how important Trustees are in making charities like Carers Trust Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk run well and do a great job of serving our communities and beneficiaries. We are in the middle of an important transition process that will let us ‘up our game’ and do even more.
I became Chair of Trustees just a few months ago, having had a really positive experience chairing our local hospice for nearly a decade. We have already found a terrific new CEO who starts in January and takes over from our retiring CEO who grew the charity from almost nothing. And in early December we’ll kick off a recruitment campaign to bring in three new Trustees to join the team. It’s a wonderful opportunity to use your skills and experience, to work with some talented and interesting colleagues, and to make a real difference to those around you.
If this might be of interest, please drop me an email at [email protected]. We’ll send you an information pack as soon as it is available.”
