National Trustees’ Week, which ran from 13 – 17 November, recognises the hard work and commitment of volunteers throughout the UK.
Latest figues show that volunteers contribute some 15.6 billion to the UK economy.
Trustees from all over the County came together at one of one of Cambridgeshire ACRE’s regular village hall trustee coffee mornings. This event was held at Newton village hall, and are a great opportunity for trustees to network, share knowledge and experiences of running village halls and community centres.
The theme of this morning was the challenge of running small village halls and recruiting and retaining volunteers.
Trustees work so hard for their charities and it is really important that we celebrate and recognise their achievements. So many of Cambridgeshire’s village halls rely on dedicated volunteers who put in many unpaid hours, ensuring the general public are safe in using their local facilities.
