Greatham Allotment Charity call for Trustees

There are two vacancies for trustees at the Greatham Allotment Charity. The purpose of the charity is to financially support Greatham residents that have found themselves in financial difficulty – this can be through gifts in kind or grants of money.

This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference in the community, the role of a trustee is to:
  • Be available to meet and consider applications as and when applications for support are received
  • Good communication skills and integrity
  • Act with discretion and protect the identity of applicants
  • Act with reasonable care and with the charities best interests
  • Ensure the charity is accountable
  • Good local knowledge
  • If an applicant is ineligible (i.e. not a resident of Greatham) help find other sources for financial help.
The parish council are responsible for appointing trustees to the charity so, if you are interested, please email the clerk at with a short summary about yourself and your skill set.
