Lewisham Toy Library needs a chairman of the boardgames

Lewisham Toy Library is looking for a new chairman. They say:

We've been operating for 38 years but recently lost a big chunk of our council funding, so we're likely to be moving from our home in Catford to a new home, likely to be in or around New Cross.

The Chairman retired last year, and since then Dwayne Baraka has been acting chair - but as he's also started his own business we now need a chairperson to really direct and drive the operation if we are to stay alive.

We have 271 families registered, and the service is free for those on benefits, whereas childminders pay 5 pounds a year, and the full fee is 27 pounds a year. For that princely sum, they can borrow four toys for up to a month, including massive toys you just wouldn't want in your living room.

We have a vast range of people coming through our doors, but would really like to build numbers - to help shore up our coffers to
keep going, as well as recruiting more volunteers who would be willing to spend an hour or two occasionally to help out.

Recruiting the right Chairperson is a really key next step to ensuring the survival of the main service, and giving us all the security to expand the concept further.
