Gold Membership

The Trust values all of its public members but recognises that some members want to be involved with the Trust more regularly than others. Gold members can expect to be invited to engagement events designed specifically for them and to be contacted by the public governor for their area to keep them up to date with what's happening at the Trust. Gold membership is particularly valuable for members who think that they would like to stand for election as a public governor or for members who have been a public governor in the past and who would like to maintain their links with the Trust.
