St Michael’s Hospice is appealing for new board members to join the main Board of Trustees and Directors for the Lottery and Retail Boards.
Celia Pyke-Lees, Chief Executive St Michael’s Hospice says the role of Trustees and Directors is about leadership and being legally accountable for the activities of the Hospice or its Retail and Lottery Companies. “The Hospice currently has a very active Board of Trustees which has recently undertaken a further review of the skills of its members,” she said.
“The Hospice is at a significant stage of development. Not only have we been improving our facilities following the fire last year, but we have been responding to changing health needs with a strong focus on supporting people in the community, using the skills both of our clinical staff and of our Hospice Neighbours volunteers.
“We are living through exciting but challenging times.”
There are various roles available on the Board and Retail Boards including fundraising, marketing, adult social care, accountancy and/or financial management.
Irene Dibben, Chairman of St Michael’s Hospice says the roles include quite a strong commitment. “Apart from regular Board meetings, there is ongoing involvement in different areas of the Hospice,” she said. “I have always found it immensely rewarding - and certainly never dull!”
