Trustees Week 2023

Trustees' Week Logo

Many voices. Working together. With purpose.  

Trustees’ Week is a time for us to celebrate the achievements of nearly one million trustees across the UK. The 2023 theme is many voices, working together, with purpose. 

Charities make a huge and positive impact on society and are dedicated to an enormous variety of good causes. This year we celebrate the individual talents, viewpoints and experiences each trustee brings to their board and their collective decision making and how diversity can help make a charity stronger. We also highlight the wealth of guidance and support that charities can draw on, to survive and thrive. 

We would like to take this opportunity to specifically thank and acknowledge our own wonderful Trustees. We are proud to have a diverse Board of passionate and committed people and we celebrate the fact that they all have different skills and experiences, all with different backgrounds and characteristics and all with different personal motivations for becoming a Trustee.  

Why become a Trustee? 

Being a trustee can be very rewarding. As a trustee you have the chance to support and shape the work and strategic direction of an organisation, and you can make a significant difference to a cause that matters to you, enabling you to get involved in a community or find out more about the not-for-profit sector.  It also offers the opportunity for professional development, for you to apply your unique skills and experience while learning from others.  

Our Chair of Trustees, Mark Lawrie told us

“I became a Trustee because I’ve worked in charities for a long time and I really wanted to give my time on the other side of the fence and get involved in sport for a cause I care about” 

Our incredible trustees bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion to our cause. Head across to our Instagram and LinkedIn pages to learn more about  our trustees as we uncover the range of motivations behind their commitment to Personal Best Foundation.
