- Cranfield Trust Volunteers keen to offer more management support
- Over 150 Cranfield Trust volunteers gave an overwhelming message of support at the Trust’s reception in March 2013. In the presence of HRH The Princess Royal, Patron of The Cranfield Trust, guests said that they were keen to offer more of their skills and expertise to charities.
As Chief Executive, Amanda Tincknell, said in her welcoming speech: “Our volunteer consultants are well aware of the challenges facing charities in the current climate. They are keen to provide more support and to give their time and skills to help develop resilience and improve sustainability. We are already finding that they are spending longer supporting charities, usually not only offering around 5 or 6 days of free consultancy, but with 80% of now providing ongoing support to their charity clients. It’s great to know that we have the opportunity to work with many more charities thanks to the support of our volunteers.”
