A well-known local charity is inviting expressions of interest from members of the North Lincolnshire community to join its Board of Trustees.
Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare is seeking to recruit new trustees from a range of backgrounds and ages, to enhance and support its Board on a voluntary basis.
Lindsey Lodge Chairman Alan Bell, who leads the Board of Trustees said: “Being a trustee is such a rewarding role, and only takes around two days every month.
“We are keen to reflect diversity of the communities we work within, and in this respect we would particularly welcome applications from individuals who could help us to support and build meaningful links across ethnic groups.”
He added: “There is no need to have previous board or trustee experience, more important is having shared values and transferrable skills, and a committed approach to support Lindsey Lodge. Successful candidates will be offered a full induction, ongoing support and mentorship to support them.”
Based on Burringham Road, Lindsey Lodge Hospice and Healthcare is a 29-year old registered charity, which costs over £3.7 million to run each year. It provides free of charge specialist care for patients with life limiting illnesses from North Lincolnshire, including symptom management, emotional support and end of life care.
As well as being responsible for the appointment of the Chief Executive, its Board of Trustees are collectively responsible for ensuring Lindsey Lodge is governed well and meets its objectives as set out in the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
Alan said: “We welcome applications from anyone who is passionate about making a difference in their community. We believe this is an exciting opportunity to help shape the future of Lindsey Lodge and support a fantastic local cause.”
Anyone interested, who requires further information about what the role entails and to also have an opportunity to discuss the role with a current Trustee, should contact Jane Lacey-Hatton, Workforce Manager in the first instance, on email firstname.lastname@example.org
