Two of the charity’s current trustees are due to step down as they reach the end of their term, opening a fantastic opportunity to involve new trustees in stewarding YMCA Norfolk and supporting the Chief Executive in delivering an exciting strategy and charitable mission.
Lord Richard Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL, YMCA Norfolk president, said: “We are seeking trustees who are deeply committed to their Christian faith and desire to put it into action to make a tangible difference in the lives of others.
