Trustees’ Week 2020
Thomas Pocklington Trust is celebrating Trustees’ Week (2-6 November).
A message from Thomas Pocklington Trust’s CEO
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our trustees for the contribution they make to the TPT board. They each bring a wealth of experience to provide the leadership and strategic direction to our organisation for which we are incredibly grateful.
A message from Thomas Pocklington Trust’s Chair of Trustees
Our board of trustees provides governance and leadership. We work as a team to look after everything the charity does including its finances.
We are looking to recruit two new trustees with experience in specific areas. Becoming a trustee, whether for TPT or another charity, is a great way to share your skills, experience and time with an organisation that is making a real difference to people’s lives. It’s also an opportunity to develop your leadership skills and create new connections.
In conversation with Mike Brace CBE DL
On 2 Nov 1960 Mike Brace picked up a firework concealed in a bottle which exploded in his face. In the ensuing 60 years he became a Paralympic skier and founded multiple sporting charities. We caught up with Mike during Trustee Week to hear about his life, work and trusteeships.
What is a trustee and why should you consider being one?
How much do you know about trusteeships and why is greater representation of blind and partially sighted people important?
During Trustees Week we shared the experiences and advice from blind and partially sighted trustees who hold board positions both within and outside the sight loss sector. Read these stories below.
