The Bath & West Community Energy Fund is looking for three new trustees, including a treasurer, to get involved in deciding which local environmental projects will benefit from their funding.
The charity was set up in 2014 by renewable energy co-operative Bath & West Community Energy (BWCE) to redistribute surplus income from its renewable energy generating projects.
Since then it has given out over £170,000 to local charities, volunteer organisations and community groups for projects to reduce carbon emissions and/or tackle fuel poverty.
Applicants over 16 from all sections of the community are sought for the voluntary trustee positions.
This will involve attending 4-5 daytime meetings a year, contributing to grant-making decisions and helping the charity to make positive contributions to the local community.
BWCE Fund Chair Sophie Hooper Lea said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in taking positive action on climate change.
“Our BWCE Fund grants support fantastic local projects that really make a difference.
“Enthusiasm and passion for environmental issues are at least as important as previous experience and we are happy to mentor less experienced applicants.”

The deadline for applications is Thursday 30th April 2020.
