The Committees organise a range of high profile events throughout the year including antique auctions, local fairs, concerts, lunches and even an annual clay pigeon shoot with lobster lunch.
It’s really rewarding to get involved with a group that not only supports people in need nationally but gives something back to the local community too.
We currently have 21 County Committees across the country, including groups in Scotland and Wales, and we’re always interested to hear from people thinking about starting a new one.
What will my role with the County Committees involve?
Every County Committee organises itself differently and members can chose to devote as much time to the role as they wish. Here are just a few examples of the sort of things you might do:
- Event planning
- Helping promote events in local media
- Manning stalls
- Taking minutes in meetings
- Promoting the County Committee to others
What skills do I need?
Good communication, organisation skills and enthusiasm! Our County Committees attract a wide range of people with a broad range of interests and expertise. Get in touch to see what you might be able to offer your local committee.
How much time will I need to give?
Committee meetings are organised to suit each individual group. You may just want to help on the day, or to be involved in organising an entire event from beginning to end.
Other ways to support
Don’t forget that you can also support us by taking on a challenge and raising sponsorship for us and there are other ways to help, often at no extra cost to yourself.
In addition to this the residential care homes of our sister organisation, Elizabeth Finn Homes, are supported by the Friends of the Homes, dedicated volunteers who make a real difference to residents. If you would like to find out more about becoming a Friend of the Homes please contact the relevant General Manager directly, details can be found on www.efhl.co.uk
