LEADING South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord is looking for a new trustee to help oversee the financial function of the organisation.
Lost Chord is the charity that provides vital interactive musical experiences for people living with dementia in care homes and day centres both across the region and nationally.
The rare vacancy comes with the retirement of longtime trustee and treasurer Robin France.
“Robin has been a loyal and valued member of our board of trustees for many years,” said Lost Chord Chief Executive Helena Muller.
“His retirement means we have the tough challenge of finding somebody with his level of commitment to help Lost Chord both thrive and grow in the years ahead.
“This is not an onerous commitment with meetings just six to eight times in the year, but it provides an important support to the financial management of the charity, particularly for the part-time accounts clerk, who is an extremely industrious and hard-working member of the team and uses SAGE accounting procedures in her day to day transactions.
“A knowledge of SAGE and the returns required by Charities Commission/Companies House would be beneficial.
“This is, of course, a voluntary appointment and one which would suit a qualified accountant, probably from the South Yorkshire area, who is keen to join a well established and lively charity, committed to helping to make the world a better place for people with dementia.”
Anybody interested in applying for the role should contact Helena Muller on 01709 811160.
