TimeBank recruits new trustees to focus on its core strengths

National volunteering charity TimeBank has appointed three new trustees to its Board, strengthening its focus on volunteer mentoring projects and employee volunteering.

Peter Beeby is Chief Operating Officer at Prospectus, the specialist recruitment consultancy working with the not for profit sector. He recently delivered an employability project in partnership with Thames Reach, supporting homeless people back into work. He also volunteered at London 2012, recruiting volunteers as well as taking part as a Games Maker.

Sarah Harris is the Community Development Manager at Worcestershire YMCA, where she founded the volunteer programme. Sarah has a particular interest in recruiting and training volunteers and gives regular talks to third year students at the University of Worcester about employability.

Clive Tritton is Chief Executive of Renaisi, an award winning social enterprise which is committed to making improvements to communities by putting local people at the centre of positive change. It works with organisations including local authorities, the Big Lottery Fund, the London Legacy Development Corporation and the Prince’s Trust. Clive is also an Economic Growth Advisor for the Local Government Association.

Helen Walker, Chief Executive of TimeBank, says: “TimeBank has evolved over the last year, focussing on two core areas of expertise: volunteer mentoring and employee volunteering.  I’m delighted that we are able to attract trustees with such exceptional skills and expertise to support us through the next exciting phase of our journey.”
