We've welcomed two new Trustees this year in Sandra and Grainne, who both have a particular focus on our community contribution and events. Sadly we will be saying goodbye to Charlie at the end of March, which will leave us with an all-female power team of Trustees!
Would you like to join the team? (All genders welcome!) We're particularly looking for people with skills in fundraising or safeguarding, but if you have a passion for making a difference in your local community and you're familiar with what we do and offer, come and chat to us.
