Trustees’ Week is a perfect opportunity for us to thank our trustees for their individual skills, experiences and perspectives which help to drive our charity forward, enabling us to continue to help as many children as possible within the police family.
The theme for this year’s Trustees’ Week is ‘Many Voices. Working together. With purpose’ and we are using this celebratory week to highlight how bringing these individual strengths together can achieve great things for our charity.
Our trustees have a wealth of experience both inside and outside the police family and the charitable world. They each have highly demanding jobs but devote their time to meet on four occasions each year whilst constantly promoting the work of the charity. This provides opportunities for collective decision-making and for contributing creative ideas to ensure our charity thrives with the sole purpose of helping more families in times of need.
Recently, the trustees decided it was time to refresh our brand in the hope that this will raise awareness, increase understanding, restore clarity, improve recognition and extend our reach to the wider community. The Gurney Fund became Police Children’s Fund. The way we look is changing but our trustees continue to support our beneficiaries in the same way.
Throughout this week we will share some of our trustee stories with you and once again say ‘thank you’ to them and the other one million trustees across the UK who strive to ensure their charities continue to help in a million ways.
