Trustee Vacancies at Fair Frome
Fair Frome is a local charity which provides services for people in acute need and to promote community cohesion. We also speak out against inequality. To this end we run the local Food Bank, the Furniture Bank, organise Community Dining and other events. We have also campaigned for the Living Wage, Access For All and other issues which have an adverse impact upon local people. We now need new committed Trustees to help us in our work. At this stage we are receiving an unprecedented demand for all our services, especially the Food Bank.
Fair Frome Trustees meet formally on a monthly basis to oversee the work we do, and staff and budgets etc. Trustees though are also volunteers and get involved in helping to run our events and fund raising etc. We don’t just need people with ideas we need people who are prepared to help with the practical work needed to put those ideas into action. We are especially keen to recruit people as Trustees who may have experienced some difficulties in their own lives or be close to people that have. In this way we hope to get a better understanding of the needs of people who use our services so that we can improve them.
We would like to hear from all those interested before the 11th November. Please send a brief (no more than one side of A4) letter (not a CV) setting out your experiences and why you think they would lend themselves to becoming a Fair Frome Trustee.
If you are interested but unsure or need any help understanding the role or with your application please e mail me with your telephone number or call 01373 488578
