Lindsey Lodge Hospice in Scunthorpe is set to increase the number of its six-strong Board of trustees, which oversees the strategic development of the charity.

Trustees will need to attend four board meetings a year and are also likely to be appointed to one of the hospice’s five sub-committees, which also meet quarterly.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice chairman, Andrew Horwich, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for individuals with the relevant skill set and values who may wish to contribute and support us in delivering our strategic agenda on a voluntary basis.
