An Appeal for Trustees for the Friendly Almshouses
These Almshouses are tucked away at the Brixton corner of the Stockwell Park Estate and provide accommodation for 30 women, ranging from 55 to 98 years, with warden support and an administrator. A neighbouring housing scheme has precipitated our Trustees in to embarking on a plan for part redevelopment and part refurbishment of the almshouses. At this crucial and exciting time, we need to replenish our Trustee membership and are particularly interested in people with experience in building maintenance, planning, elderly care, fundraising or charity law. Founded by women over two hundred years ago, The Friendly Almshouses is a small, solvent, friendly charity. Although traditionally run by women for women, men are equally welcome. We hold monthly meetings plus sub-committees as required and have good links to Lambeth Council and the local community.
If you are interested, please either email the Chairman - Clare.Wardle@tubelines.com or contact our Administrator Giles Wakeling 020 7274 7176 or Trustee & local resident Mary Searls 07765 643089
