22 August 2012Dear Crossroads Service UserCrossroads Care Birmingham & Solihull is as I am sure you already know, a localcharity that supports informal/family carers looking after someone of any agewith an illness, disability or life limiting condition living in the community.The charity is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees are all volunteersfrom different walks of life, who share a common commitment to the work thatCrossroads does in supporting carers. At present, we have eight trustees.We are seeking to expand the range of skills on the trustee body and ensure thatTrustees reflect the cultural diversity within our city.We are looking for Trustees with the following skills: 1. Marketing 2. Trading 3. Carer 4. Financial/Business 5. Investments 6. Fundraising 7. LegalWe plan to hold a Trustee information morning/evening to enable anyoneinterested in knowing more to come along, find out more information and havean opportunity to speak with current trustees.
However, you may feel that you cannot commit to being a Trustee, but would stilllike to help Crossroads. We are also hoping to set up a “Friends of Crossroads”group who would be willing to promote the work of Crossroads and raise funds onour behalf.If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Trustee, or would liketo join a group to raise funds and promote Crossroads in your local community,please give me a call on 0121 622 0573. If I am not in the office you can also speakwith my colleague Emma Ashton.Kind regards,Michele ColemanChief Executive Officer
