Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

THIS week (Novem­ber 7 to 13) is na­tional Trustees’ Week, an an­nual event to show­case the great work that trustees do and high­light op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple from all walks of life to get in­volved and make a dif­fer­ence.

Do you have the skills to help a unique ser­vice move for­ward, a pas­sion for the lo­cal com­mu­nity, and a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to­wards char­ity? You could be the per­fect can­di­date for one of three open­ings at Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care.

The char­ity is look­ing for three ex­pe­ri­enced can­di­dates to join its board of trustees and gov­er­nance com­mit­tees and who will help shape the char­ity for the fu­ture.

Ren­nie Grove is seek­ing a trea­surer and a fundrais­ing vol­un­teer to join the board of trustees and a clin­i­cal gov­er­nance com­mit­tee mem­ber.

The ideal ap­pli­cants for all roles will have ex­pe­ri­ence in their field at di­rec­tor level or above as well as a com­mit­ment to Ren­nie Grove and its aims.

The Fundrais­ing Trustee must have ex­pe­ri­ence within a num­ber of dif­fer­ent ar­eas of fundrais­ing with a track record of suc­cess in in­come gen­er­a­tion. David Parkins, out-go­ing fundrais­ing trustee, ex­plains why he de­cided to vol­un­teer 10 years ago: “When I be­came a trustee I hoped that I might con­trib­ute pos­i­tively to­wards the char­ity’s fu­ture. Lit­tle did I re­alise just what im­mense per­sonal sat­is­fac­tion the role would pro­vide.

“Through con­tact with a wide range of won­der­ful nurses and other peo­ple in­volved in the work of the char­ity, you ap­pre­ci­ate just what a dif­fer­ence Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care can make to so many lo­cal fam­i­lies at times of great need.”

The suc­cess­ful can­di­date for the trustee trea­surer will be a se­nior po­si­tion within the board and will be a qual­i­fied ac­coun­tant with knowl­edge of char­ity fi­nances.

A pae­di­atric qual­i­fi­ca­tion and a gen­uine in­ter­est in pal­lia­tive care is re­quired for the role of the clin­i­cal gov­er­nance com­mit­tee mem­ber.

Jenny Provin, chief ex­ec­u­tive for Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care, said: “The ex­pe­ri­ence and com­mit­ment that trustees and com­mit­tee mem­bers bring is es­sen­tial in shap­ing the di­rec­tion, sus­tain­abil­ity and sta­bil­ity of the ser­vices we of­fer to adults, chil­dren and their fam­i­lies. These are ex­cit­ing and re­ward­ing roles which make a real dif­fer­ence to the care that we pro­vide within our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

“Please join us as we make plans for the next decade.”

Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care pro­vides care and sup­port for pa­tients in parts of Bucks and Herts who are di­ag­nosed with can­cer or other life-lim­it­ing ill­ness.
