Trustee and Volunteer Opportunites

We have the following exciting opportunities that you might be interested in:

1. Trustee: one of our Trustees has stepped down following the arrival of her baby and we are looking for a local Trustee to replace her. There are five Trustees (including the current vacancy) who are responsible for the running of the charity. We meet two to three times (at least one face-to-face meeting on a Saturday) a year and each Trustee has a specific responsibility. After 5 years of running educational projects in other primary schools we are now fundraising to build our own preparatory/primary school in Kenya, To help us achieve this, we are seeking someone with fundraising experience who has a few hours to spare each month.

2. Volunteers are welcome to help us to fundraise for our own preparatory/primary school in Kenya. We are keen to build on our profile in Bradley Stoke and environs as a locally based charity working in Kenya. Next year we are planning a number of fundraising activities and are looking for volunteers who can spare a few hours and donate a few ideas!

If you are interested Chris would be delighted to discuss these opportunities.  He can be contacted by phone on 0330 120 0720 (evenings) or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

New Trustee Opportunity

We are looking to appoint a new Trustee to join our team.  This is a great opportunity for someone with fundraising experience to get involved in an exciting project that will enable local children in Kenya to gain an education, which in turn would empower the local communities.

A professional fundraiser was contracted last year to research potential grant making organisations and develop a Case for Support. We would be looking to the Trustee to take the lead on this, supported by the other Trustees.
