New Management Committee Members Needed

Volunteers are the store lifeblood and without them, around 48,000 children and 6,000 adults wouldn’t have access to low-cost resources.  We love to share ideas about reusing materials and encourage our volunteers and members to help us to do the same. We have been open for over 30 years and we have seen many changes and we wish to keep on doing the same for future generations.

What we are looking for…

Do you have great ideas and want to contribute to a community cause?
Southampton Scrapstore is looking for new trustees to serve on the management committee and take this wonderful local 35 year old charity forward, hopefully for another 35 years.

“Trustees ensure their charity has a clear strategy, and that its work and goals are in line with its vision. A trustee’s role in a charity is to be the ‘guardians of purpose’, making sure that all decisions put the needs of the beneficiaries first. ”

There are a variety of roles we need help with, from fund raising to admin, strategy planning to event management. Working with our coordinator to ensure the smooth running of the charity.
These roles can be completed remotely, with meetings taking place on zoom. Meaning your contribution can be made from the comfort and safety of your home.
Commitments are made yearly at our AGM and it is a great voluntary role to enhance your CV.

Our annual AGM will take place on the 29th July at 7.30pm via Zoom

If you have great ideas, a few hours to spare a week and want to support us moving forward, then please get in touch.

Current opportunities Trustees: General committee members, Treasurer and Secretary. Contact us now for an application form.
