Recruitment for Trustees
We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced people to join our Board of Trustees.
Join us and help vulnerable people in Cambridge!
Cambridge Aid is a small charity which has been around for 140 years. We are a dedicated group of Trustees who are passionately committed to helping the most vulnerable in our community. We are regularly given feedback that our help (relatively small amounts of money) can make a difference to people’s lives because it is given so promptly and flexibly.
We provide emergency financial grants to those in need from Cambridge city and its surrounding villages who are referred to us from 60 sponsoring agencies including Citizens Advice, Children and Family Centres, Social Services and charities for the homeless and disadvantaged. All our Trustees are volunteers and 99% of the funds we raise go directly to vulnerable people.
We are looking for experienced people who can in time develop to cover the key roles of Chair, Treasurer or Secretary when our current Trustees are away or when they eventually retire.
As a Trustee we will give you:
The chance to improve the lives of impoverished people in need in the Cambridge and surrounding area. Induction and training.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Please phone the Chair, Joel Limmer, on 07445 803 599 for an informal chat, or you can email a brief CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I want to say a huge big thank you to Cambridge Aid for all the funds you have given the families and individuals throughout the year.
It has made such a difference to many families - not just for the essentials, and I can’t tell you how often people have been in tears as the gesture is so poignant for them. The money will definitely make such a difference to the families this year."
