We recently did a talk to the Federation of Small Businesses in Shropshire, about the ways that small businesses could help small charities with donations of time and skills, rather than with money.
Kim Kelly of Granville Bookkeeping stepped forward and offered the charity her services in managing our day-to-day finances and keeping or records compliant with charity law.
This is a huge weight off the shoulders of our Treasurer – who is also an operational team member – and frees up his time to devote to training and callouts.
Our massive thanks to Kim for her support, which will make a big difference to the charity.
As she says in her own words: “I love organising. I love targeting paperwork clutter: nothing makes me happier than to create order out of chaos. I tell businesses that they needn’t feel awkward – it’s a pure joy for me to transform all that stray paperwork into a workable system”.
Kim is now a vital supporter of the charity, and a superb example of how, if you have a little time to give, you can apply your existing skills to help a charity in need.
