Help!!! Volunteer Accountant Needed!!!

We are currently looking for a volunteer accountant, someone who can help us with our charity’s accounts.

We’d need around 2 or 3 hours a month of your time, and we can pay expenses.

If you can help, please get in touch by emailing us at: info@hlca.org.uk, or calling us on: (020) 8659 7038.


St Hugh’s Needs More Trustees!

Would you like to be involved with the Hilda Lane Community Association and the Community Centre?

We are looking for new trustees to join us at HLCA. There are 6 trustees on the board but we would love to increase our numbers, especially from the local area. The more people on the board, the wider the reach and the greater impact we can have on the local community. We currently have 1 gentleman and five ladies with an age range from late 30’s to early 60’s. It would be great to have some more gentlemen and a younger dynamic join the group but everyone is welcome. The role is voluntary but very rewarding. It gives you a chance to give something back to the
community. It can be frustrating at times as red tape, funding and policy can be a minefield but we can promise you, the good most definitely out ways the bad.

We are looking for skills which can be transferred to community work, this can be as simple as note taking to accountancy, event organising, youth work, staff management and caretaking services. If you think you have something we need and you want to get stuck in with the local community then please get in touch. Minimum requirement is for a trustee is to attend 4 quarterly meetings and the AGM each year. Your details would be added to Company’s House and the Charities Commission. HLCA is a limited company and we have insurance which covers all volunteers. You would be required to have a DBS check which we can do for you should you come on board.

If you are interested in becoming a trustee, or just have a question about becoming one, please email Alix at: alix.bushnell@hlca.org.uk.
