Created: 13 November 2017
Trustees’ Week highlights the valuable work that charity trustees undertake in running local charities and serving the community. This year, Trustees’ Week runs from 13-17 November 2017.
There are 11,133 charities operating in Yorkshire and the Humber area, which offer a number of essential services both locally and nationally. Trustees, most of whom are volunteers, are the heart and soul of these charities and ultimately take responsibility for the charity’s crucial work.
Trustees’ Week celebrates the people behind the country’s thriving charitable sector and aims to encourage others to consider trusteeship. It highlights the invaluable skills and experience you can gain whilst making significant progress within a charity you are passionate about.
Andrew comments, "We have some great local charities in our area who are doing essential work both locally and nationally. Trustees bring a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to their charities, making charitable causes and projects possible. They come from all walks of life, and often their work is done behind the scenes and without the recognition they are due.
"I encourage everyone to consider trusteeship and put your strengths and passion to good use. It is a great way to learn new skills and gain invaluable experience, which of course could lead to new opportunities."
