The 7th – 11th of November was Trustees Week – a time to come together to celebrate the achievements of nearly 1 million trustees across the UK.

Charity trustees are the people who share ultimate responsibility for governing a charity and directing how it is managed and run.

We kicked off Trustees Week with the Fitter Finance team hosting a free workshop, Treasurer Training, on Wednesday 9th November to help people better understand the trustee position & role of treasurer for a charity or community organisation. 

We also heard from two of our trustees, Jo Beckman & Alex Minford, about why they volunteer as trustees for Aston-Mansfield:

Jo Beckmann said: “I am a trustee for Aston-Mansfield because I want to support the passion and community vision for making a tangible difference to the lives of children and young people living in Newham.”

Alex Minford said: “I am a trustee for Aston-Mansfield because I am a part of the AM team bringing positive impacts to the people of Newham.”
