Our 2023 theme: Many voices. Working together. With purpose.

Charities make a huge and positive impact on society and are dedicated to an enormous variety of good causes. This year we celebrate the individual talents, viewpoints and experiences each trustee brings to their board and their collective decision making and how diversity can help make a charity stronger.

Tell us about your fantastic trustees and we’ll promote the stories as part of Trustee week and a big thank you to your Trustees making a difference in your community and charity.

Look out for some great events and information during this week, you’ll find the info on our social media and website.

The Community Hub is currently raising funds to develop its community garden project.

To deliver this project we will need to increase capacity for food growing, craft activities, pond improvements and accessible tools/areas to promote an all-inclusive experience to allow our garden to be utilised more, for education to be shared and behavioural changes to be role modelled across the community, aims being an improved outdoor space for horticultural activities, sustainable food growth and improvement of our biodiversity and pollinating areas.
