Daisy Binnie will be stepping down as a Trustee at Easter. This means we will need to recruit a Chair of Trustees. Daisy has been involved with the Club for a number of years and has done a huge amount to support us which we are very grateful for.
Below are details of the role. We are also always keen to recruit Trustees so that we continue to run the Club and meet our obligations as a charity. Please share this post and tell friends, colleagues and family about the roles.
CHAIR OF TRUSTEES & TRUSTEES WANTED
Come and join the dynamic and passionate team running The Hollow Lane Club. We provide varied, rich and exciting experiences to children and young people with complex additional needs and have been operating for over 20 years.
We want to strengthen our Board of Trustees by recruiting a new Chair and Trustees who have an interest in supporting our work. Our current Chair has been in post for several years and is ready to hand over the reins for the next phase of the Hollow Lane Club.
The Hollow Lane Club provides After School, Saturday, Siblings, Social and Summer Clubs across 3 sites. We work in partnership with the schools that most of our children and young people attend and whose buildings we use for the Clubs. We have a range of funders, including the National Lottery and Children in Need. Places at The Hollow Lane Club are subsidised by grant funding to ensure that services can be offered to all and that cost is not a barrier to access.
The day to day running of the charity is done by a small part time employed team. We have a team of experienced and dedicated workers, who are incredibly passionate about the club that we run. We are registered with OFSTED and have excellent feedback from families and the children and young people who come to our Club.
We look to all Trustees to be our critical friends and bring their experience and expertise to the table.
Chair of Trustees Role
We are looking for an experienced trustee to take on the Chair of Trustees role. You will have a full handover from the current chair and the support of the team and current trustees.
The role of the Chair is:
1. To work in partnership with the General manager to ensure that the charity has a clear vision, mission and strategic direction and that the charity, the Trustees and the General Manager are focused on achieving these.
2. To ensure that the board of Trustees fulfils its duties and responsibilities for the proper governance of the charity.
3. To help the General Manager to achieve the charity’s aims and objectives.
General Trustee Roles
We are looking for Trustees with previous charity experience at board level and a willingness to continue to learn within the charity sector. Trustees need to have a good standard of literacy and numeracy, be able to work with a range of people and have good communication skills.
As a volunteer for our Charity, you will benefit from the protection provided by our CIO Status.
Would you like to have fun & earn some money at the same time?

Thank you so much to Luke, Manager of our Social Club, for taking part in the Great West Run to raise funds for The Hollow Lane Club. We are all very passionate about our Club and any funds raised will go towards providing the fun activities that our young people enjoy. Please support him if you can Thank you
Our Summer Club 2021 ran for its usual 12 days at the beginning of the summer holidays.
Although it was a bit different this year as we spent more time outside due to Covid restrictions and the fact that our Dartington children and young people came to Exeter, it was still a brilliant success with an exciting and varied programme (pdf) that was enjoyed by all.
Take a look at our Summer Club page for more, including many more highlight photos, and some facts and figures.
The overwhelming gratitude and positive feedback that we have received from children and young people and their parents/carers is very much appreciated by the team.
Massive thanks to the brilliant staff of The Hollow Lane Club. Plus Steve, Mary, Deb, Lisa and Louise and the Trustees who have worked hard throughout the past difficult eighteen months to bring Summer Club 2021!
And thanks to the children and young people for joining in. We hope to see you all again very soon.
Hello again. I hope you are all as well as you can be in this time of challenges: heat, Covid, end of term, summer holiday etc……you name it!
The Summer Club is on us, we made it! 12 days of play, activities and fun for the children and young people. We have, in the circumstances, had a tremendous response from parents, carers, staff, children and young people. Thank you from me on behalf of the Hollow Lane Club, our Staff and our Trustees for your patience and perseverance.
We are looking forward to seeing nearly 100 children and young people during the 12 days over the next three weeks. We hope that everyone has a great time and as much fun as possible. I will be around and hope to meet as many of you as I can.
In September, as the recent Newsletter announced, we will be running a full programme of Clubs and social activities (providing prevailing conditions allow with bubbles etc…) to include After School Clubs, Social Club, Siblings Club and Saturday Club at our three locations at Ellen Tinkham School, Ellen Tinkham College and Bidwell Brook School.
Thank you for all your support in these challenging times. We are here to support you as much as possible.
