As a charitable organisation we are looking for a trustee to join our board who is passionate about providing services to the community.

We expect you to have a broad understanding of the voluntary or community sector: the challenges involved in the work of this sector; the importance of good governance in running a registered charity; and willingness to help support the aims and objectives of the organisation.

Ideally you will have experience in an area of work that will support our small charity - whether it is in administration, financial administration, social work, education, or arts development. It would also be advantageous if you have a understanding of the Chinese community, culture and Putonghua/Mandarin Chinese.

We primarily serve the Chinese community of Lancaster and its surrounding areas through welfare services, cultural outreach and education, but also supporting the greater social cohesion and wellbeing of all communities regardless of ethnicity.

We do this with a variety of long running regular services at our community centre like information and advice drop-ins and communal social space, but also through a varied and exciting programme of activities in other settings such as local libraries, school and community events.

Our two main projects are the Lancaster Chinese School and Lancaster Chinese Arts Festival.

The Lancaster Chinese School is based at the Lancaster Boys and Girls Club on Dallas Road, Lancaster and runs Chinese language classes for children from 5-16 years. It was started to help children in Chinese families to preserve their connections with their heritage through their mother tongue and understanding of Chinese culture. However with the increasing importance of Chinese in the world in not just business, but also culture, we include students from the wider community who are interested in learning Chinese language and culture.

The Lancaster Chinese Arts Festival coincides with the Chinese lunar new year and incorporates both traditional Chinese New Year celebrations in the form of the Lancaster Chinese New Year Carnival and fund-raising Gala Dinner as well as an artistic programme which has included exhibitions, theatrical performances, screenings, touring activities and arts workshops. Artists who we have worked with over the years include Ed Pien, Pagoda Arts, Red Dragonfly Productions, Puppetcraft, Wanlin Steele and many more.

作为一家慈善组织,我们正在寻找一名信托人加入本社的管理层,必须热衷慈善工作为社区提供服务。

我们期望您是对志愿贡献或对社区各相关部门有广泛的了解:这份委托内所涉及的任务;协助改善管理注册慈善组织的重要委托;并且志愿协助和支持本组织的发展目标为主。

在符合的情况下,您将获得一份有经验的工作范围,将支持我们小型慈善组织的委托 - 无论是在行政,财务管理,社区工作,或推广教育或发展艺术项目。如果你是了解华人社区的需求,例如:文化教育/中文汉语或粤语,对于发展项目那也是有益的条件。

我们主要是经过社区福利的服务,促进文化艺术和教育,为兰卡斯特社区及其周边区域的华人提供服务,同时也支持和凝聚更多的力量,为相关地区的社群福祉提供公益服务,无分性别和任何的民族共同努力一致的达到目标。

我们通过社区服务中心提供定期的各公益服务于社群,例如:下载福利信息和有助的建议于社群,公众社交活动的场地实现目标,同时也通过其他场地提供各项服务(例如:当地图书馆,各中小学校和其它社区中心办活动)开展各公益和谐的社区活动。

本慈善组织最主要的项目,是发展兰卡斯特和临近区域的中文学校和推广中华艺术节庆祝。

我们学校位于兰卡斯特市中心,达拉斯兰开斯特男女童俱乐部为5岁儿童至18岁提供中文汉语课程,最初创办中文学校目的是帮助我们华人的孩子通过自己母语和对祖国的文化理解更加详细,来保存他们遗忘的联系。然而,随着中国不仅在企业上,而且在语言上的文化其他民族越来越重视中文,目前中文学校已包括来自更广泛其他民族学习汉语和了解中华文化的学生。

本慈善组织在十几年,在兰卡斯特举办的中华艺术节与中国农历新年庆祝的配合,一直以农历春节大型嘉年华文娱表演和游行庆祝,并且举办室内春节筹款晚宴的形式庆祝。
