This week is Trustees’ Week; and to mark it Loughborough MP Nicky Morgan is thanking local charity trustees for their dedicated work in running local charities, and highlighting the benefits of becoming a charity trustee.
There are hundreds of charities in and around Loughborough, covering a wide range of activities and services but all depend on the trustees that oversee their work, most of whom are volunteers.
Trustees’ Week raises awareness of the work they do, and also highlights how people can benefit themselves by becoming trustees, through gaining valuable experience and skills.
“We have some fantastic local charities doing really important work and their trustees are integral to this success. This Trustees’ Week I want to pay tribute to the tireless work they undertake to help others and keep the charity sector in Loughborough so vibrant and strong.”
Mike Millman, Chair of the Board of Trustees of Exaireo Trust in Loughborough added:
“Serving as a trustee has been a most rewarding experience. By supporting those that have dedicated themselves to the work of a charity, you are able to make a real contribution, whilst at the same time gaining experiences and friendships that are invaluable.”
