Age UK Todmorden are holding their Annual General Meeting on Monday 13 August at Central Methodists in Todmorden. This is an opportunity to find out about the range of services that the organisation has been providing for local older people and some of the activities over the last financial year.
There will be light refreshments before the meeting and afterwards our local PCSO will be giving a talk on ‘Life as a Community Police Officer in Todmorden’.
The AGM is also an opportunity to get involved, either as a member or as a trustee.
Age UK Todmorden is looking for new people with ideas, enthusiasm and some time on their hands to join the Board of Trustees and share some of the responsibility of managing the charity and supporting the work of the paid staff and volunteers. Board members take part in regular trustee meetings, Annual General Meetings and are also required to attend training on an ad hoc basis to develop their skills.
Age UK Todmorden is a small local charity whose main aims are to support older people in Todmorden to access services, benefits advice and information. It is also one of the main providers of social activities in the town providing 3 lunch clubs a week, trips, social groups and regular coffee mornings and afternoon teas.
If anyone is interested in joining the Board or would like to find out more, call in at the Age UK Todmorden offices, 11 Burnley Road, Todmorden. Alternatively call 01706 817926 for more information.
