This week (1 - 5th November 2021) it's National Trustees Week - an annual event celebrating the great work that trustees do and promoting opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.

Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They may be called trustees, directors, board members, governors or committee members, but they are the people with ultimate responsibility for directing the business of the charity. They are often the unsung heroes, playing a vital role, volunteering their time, working together to make the decisions that really matter about the charity's finances, activities and plans for the future.

People often become trustees to 'give something back', but there is a two-way benefit; charities benefit from the range of skills and experience that their trustees bring, but trustees can learn and develop new skills that may open up new opportunities for them, as well as meeting people who share their passion.

Sight Support HEY would like to thank our Board of Trustees for their hard work and dedication. The role is purely voluntary and they give up a lot of their free time to help make the Sight Support HEY the success it is today.
