Interested in using your skills and experience to strengthen your local community?

Come and join us for a cuppa and a piece of cake in the Town Hall cafe on Thursday 10 November between 4pm and 7.30pm to mark Trustees Week and find out more about becoming a charity trustee.

Several of our trustees will be on hand for an informal chat about their experience of being involved with Hebden Bridge Community Association (HBCA), the charity that owns and manages the Town Hall on behalf of the whole community.

As well as offering a range of spaces for community groups and businesses, The Town Hall leads the Staying Well project in the Hebden Bridge area to reduce loneliness and isolation, and was a vital community hub in the aftermath of the Boxing Day floods.

Rachel Rickards, Chair of HBCA says:

“Community is right at the heart of who we are and what we do. Since Christmas, we’ve seen how your Town Hall has the potential to do something really different. We’d like people to come and join us as trustees to explore that and bring new skills and experience to our board.”

Trustees play a vital role in managing charities, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work.

Trustees’ Week is 7-13 November is, and an opportunity to find out more about being a charity trustee and how you can get involved and make a difference.
