    Buckhaven Baptist Church is looking for volunteers to support the running of their Cosy Cafe and food distribution service. Cosy Cafe is in its seventh year and is a place for the community to come together which offers cereal, filled rolls, hot food and sweet treats for free from 10am - 1pm every Wednesday. The food distribution service runs 12 - 2pm on a Wednesday, where bags of food are given out to the community for a small charge of £1.

Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!

Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
