Friends of the Holy Land (FHL) seek additional trustees

Friends of the Holy Land (FHL) wishes to recruit additional trustees.

We currently have on our Board nine trustees, two of whom are priests and the remainder laymen. We are looking to diversify the Board in gender, age and experience.

Our mission has developed so that our support as a charity is focussed from the bottom up by identifying individuals and families in the Holy Land in need of help. It is a very rewarding charity with which to work.

FHL is a registered Charity whose objectives are:

To raise awareness of the challenges faced by Christians living in the Holy Land
To encourage prayer on their behalf
To generate financial resources to give them a sustainable future
To encourage visits to the Holy Land to meet local Christians

FHL's mission is to help individuals and families who are vulnerable Christians in the Holy Land, seeking to maintain a Christian presence in that land. The work of FHL is ecumenical and non-political. It was established in 2009 and patrons include Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Archbishop Justin Welby.

As a trustee you will be required to attend three meetings per year, two of them in Central London, and to participate in telephone and email communications in order to share your experience.

FHL is looking to recruit trustees who support Christian values and whose experience can contribute positively to the mission and objectives of the Charity and to ensure an appropriate balance within the Board. Specifically, candidates with finance, legal, communication or human resources skills will be favoured. This is a voluntary position.

You can see more information as to our work on our website or by obtaining a report on us from the public area of the Charity Commission site. More information can be obtained from Jim Quinn, Chairman of the Trustees, [email protected]

Applications with a CV should be submitted to him by 17 June 2019. Interviews will take place in July.
