Friends of St James’ Park is a registered Charity. It is a small project that achieves great things. Our aim is to enhance the lives of both the local and the wider community in Southampton by the provision of recreational facilities, activities and events. We also run support groups for vulnerable people in the local area. We usually organise annual events for families in Southampton such as our Easter Fair, our Summer Festival and our dog show. Since the first lockdown in early spring of 2020 when it became necessary to suspend our usual activities, we have been supporting the local community by keeping people informed and engaged. We also transitioned to direct support for those in the local area, who needed it, with the provision of food, toiletries and cleaning products.
The principal function of our Treasurer is to maintain an overview of the organisation’s financial affairs, ensuring its viability and that proper financial records and procedures are maintained.
The Treasurers role requires a regular commitment and willingness to be contacted on an ad hoc basis. Our current Treasurer will be available to handover and offer support.
