A local rural development charity has said ‘thank you’ to its team of volunteers as the country celebrates National Trustrees’ Week.
Cambridgeshire ACRE welcomed trustees from all over the county at the organisation’s regular village hall trustee coffee mornings, which are used at networking opportunities.
The event’s topics of discussion this time included the challenges of running small village halls and recruiting and retaining volunteers.
Lisa Chambers, community facilities development officer at Cambridgeshire ACRE said: “Trustees work so hard for their charities and it is really important that we celebrate and recognise their achievements.
“So many of Cambridgeshire’s village halls rely on dedicated volunteers who put in many unpaid hours, being there every day to open up, ensure the bills are paid and that the public are safe using their local facilities.
