Community Impact Bucks (CIB) are holding a free to attend event on Tuesday 24th January 2017 in Aylesbury for anyone looking to make a difference to the lives of local people by becoming a charity trustee.
Being a charity trustee is a role which provides vision and drive to lead an organisation into the future and a great way to be involved in a cause which matters to you.
The Community Impact Bucks (CIB) matchmaking fair will be held on Tuesday 24th January 2017 between 6.00pm and 7.00pm at The Gateway, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury. Attendees will learn more about becoming a trustee and be inspired by a variety of local charities looking for new trustees, all under one roof.
Ira Bhattacharya is a trustee of three local charities, including the mental health charity Bucks Mind who she met at CIB’s first trustee matchmaking fair in January 2016. ‘Being a trustee means I can make a difference by giving my time and skills to charities who are so passionate about what they do.
It makes me really happy and gives such a sense of fulfilment when I can see the positive outcomes for the effort I make. I’d recommend being a trustee to anyone.‘
Carol Heap is a trustee of Community Impact Bucks who she met at the first trustee matchmaking fair in January 2016. ‘The Fair was the perfect way to find the right charity for me. It’s an informal but informative evening and I’m so glad I went; being a trustee is a way for me to use my skills and experience to make a real difference to the many local charities and not for profit groups in Bucks.‘
One in five local charities are desperate for new trustees you could make a real difference to them and the people they help. In addition it’s a bonus for you too; share your skills, learn new experiences and meet new people.
The event is free to attend and registration is at www.communityimpactbucks.org.uk.
