Read for Good has been motivating children to read for fun since 1984. They supply beautiful, brand-new books and visits from professional storytellers, offering children in hospital the chance to escape to other worlds in their imagination. Children in schools are motivated to read using their free Readathon kits all whilst raising money to get books to children in hospital and books for their school.
With an annual income of c£750k, a small staff team, a committed and engaged Board of Trustees and an amazing team of volunteers, the charity punches well above its weight. Michael, the current Chair is due to retire and we are working with the Charity to find an experienced Trustee who can fill his big shoes - his commitment and passion will be hard to replace. We are looking for someone who can demonstrate great leadership skills, is able to recognise what good governance looks and feels like, is tactful and diplomatic and has previous experience within the voluntary sector.
If you would like to talk to me about this opportunity or, indeed, trusteeship in general, I would be delighted to hear from you. More details can be found in the attached information pack.
