'Volunteer Trustee's' needed x3 for a NEW charity!
Hi all and thank you for taking the time to read my advert.
I am desperately seeking to appoint '3' charity trustees on a 'voluntary' basis for my new charity called 'Guardian; Here for you!', founded in June 2021. The charity will help certain vulnerable persons who meet strict criteria living in 'Lambeth and Southwark'. Created by myself, Dean Lemar, after years of personal and professional experience.
The objectives of the charity are to offer comfort and financial aid during times or hardship and emergency to vulnerable groups, such as; The older person (70 onwards). The younger person (18-22). Those with certain chronic illness/disease/disability (e.g. HIV, Agoraphobia, Autism, Spinal stenosis, Dementia). And groups who wish to undertake community projects towards the same.
Relying on the hard work of volunteers and the much-needed donations; The charity will support those persons by purchasing equipment, clothes, arranging treatments or other services, by giving care, and by delivering financial help throughout the year (especially during the winter months) that in turn will also benefit communities by easing burdens on other resources.
'Guardian' will bring happiness, relief, and peace to those who need it during times of loneliness, despair and worry (times when it may seem that there is nowhere else to turn). Devoted to bringing safety and joy to as many persons as possible, 'Guardian' will make a huge difference to the lives of the vulnerable.
