Trustee Challenge Winners

To celebrate Trustees' Week 2011, Small Charities Coalition and Charity Trustee Networks set three challenges to get trustees celebrating and improving their trustee board.

After much deliberation they selected three individual category winners and one overall winner. The four winners will receive training course vouchers from charity recruiters TPP Not for Profit and the Directory of Social Change.

The winners are:

Category 1 Celebration Prize - Farleigh Hospice, awarded for thanking each of their trustees with a personal card and for trustee Jeff Slater's submission to SCC and CTN’s Trustee of the Week page.

Category 2 Governance Improvement Prize - 1st Cheddington Scout Group, awarded for following the principles of good governance. They demonstrated that they understand their role, are ensuring resources are used to deliver organisational purpose, have worked effectively as a team, are exercising control and assessing risk, are behaving with integrity and being open and accountable.

Category 3 Gearing up for Recruitment Prize - St Wilfrid's Hospice Chicester, for designing and implementing a skills audit of their whole governance board, including sub-committees. This has helped them better identify what skills and experience they should be looking for in their upcoming round of recruitment.

Overall Winner - Womankind Worldwide, for trustee Kate Rutherford's fantastic story of her experiences as a trustee and recent trip to Zimbabwe to see the work of Womankind in action.
