Barbara Bus Fund Trustee Vacancy

Barbara Bus specially adapted vehicles

The Barbara Bus Fund is a charity that provides specially adapted vehicles for the use of people who are wheelchair users and cannot access conventional transport.

Due to the imminent retirement of one of the trustees, the Fund is looking to recruit a suitable successor to join the committee.  The committee holds its meetings at Stanmore, in the evenings, usually every six to eight weeks.  The role of the trustees is mainly strategic, with the day to day running of the Fund being managed by the office staff. However, there may be some occasions when trustees attend during the day if they can to assist and support the Fund.
