MP meets charity heroes in celebration of Trustees’ Week 2011

with trustees and staff at HRECTo mark Trustees’ Week and highlight the important work these volunteers do for charities, Lynne Featherstone MP on Friday met trustees at Haringey Race and Equalities Council (HREC).

The Turnpike Lane based organisation has been working to promote equality and diversity in Haringey since the 1960s. They offer a casework service to combat discrimination against local residents and provide a support service to black and minority ethnic, refugee and disability groups so they can help more people locally. HREC has 16 trustees, who freely give up their time and skills to lead the Council and make sure they continue to provide this much needed service for the people of Haringey.

Lynne Featherstone MP comments:

“Haringey Race and Equality Council does great work for the people of Haringey, and the charity is warmly appreciated by local residents.

“This is to a great extent thanks to its dedicated trustees, some of whom have been with the HREC almost since its inception. Charity trustees here and at so many other organisations across Haringey are often unsung heroes, and it’s great to highlight their special work this Trustees’ Week. Long may it continue!”
