          Would you like to be part of this award-winning, exciting and dynamic organisation?

          You can take part in a number of ways:

          As a Trustee – if you have an interest in helping to manage the delivery and development of our charity and its associated organisations, being a Trustee may be the role for you

          We are looking for women who are not afraid to call themselves feminists and who can offer us one of the three Ts – Time, Treasure or Talent.

          Our boards of Trustees are active participants in the success of the organisation which means that we ask for your time not only at management committee meetings (2 hours once a month on a Wednesday evening), but also to develop other aspects of the organisations’ work.

          You may have an interest in supporting staff (and expertise in human resources) or you may have an interest in helping out with fundraising (and expertise in generating income) or you may have an interest or expertise in any aspect of issues affecting women.

          The main attributes you need are:

          • Enthusiasm for what we are doing
          • Commitment to give your time
          • Willingness to roll your sleeves up and contribute

          For more details or an informal chat please e-mail lisa.hilder@purplehouse.co.uk

          As a paid worker – we are constantly growing and looking for new staff. Opportunities for paid work are advertised from time to time in the local press and here.

          As a volunteer – whatever your interest and skills we can offer you a chance to contribute to your local community and help women who need some support at a difficult time. e-mail yvonne.oglesby@purplehouse.co.uk for more details.

          Donations

          Preston Road Women’s Centre is a local charity providing a range of specialist services enabling women and children to get back on their feet after domestic violence or other traumatic life events.

          In this difficult financial climate, the services are experiencing increased demand with no additional funding to increase the help we can offer.

          If you were in a position to make even a small donation, your generosity could make a big difference to a family in dire straits:

          • £5 could provide a food parcel for a family fleeing violence
          • £10 could provide a Nursery place for a child whilst Mum receives confidential support
          • £25 could provide an individualised safety plan for a family experiencing ongoing harassment

          Online

          One-off donations or regular monthly payments can be made online by going to www.justgiving.com/winner

          By post

          If you would like to support our work by making a donation, we would be happy to receive your cheque. Please make it payable to:

          Preston Road Women’s Centre
          185 Preston Road
          Hull
          HU9 5UY

          Inland Revenue Gift Aid scheme

          To help us make the most of your donation, we can claim back any income tax you have paid on your donation, through the Inland Revenue’s Gift Aid Scheme. All you need to do is to give your name and address when you make your donation and we will do the rest. Click here for Gift Aid form.

          Remembering us in your will

          If you are currently thinking of making a will, you might like to consider making a bequest to the women’s centre. Remembering us in your will is a way for you to ensure that your money will help others when you have passed on.
