What You Will Get Out of Volunteering:
This is a great opportunity to contribute to the work of Parkinson’s UK if you have experience of, or are interested in book keeping. The Treasurer’s role is essential for making sure our groups run successfully and continue to benefit people affected by Parkinson’s in their area. The Treasurer’s Guide will be provided to all treasurer’s and we hope that the guide covers everything you need to know. There are a number of useful tools, forms and templates available on the Treasurer’s resources webpage, or on disc.
It would be an advantage to have previous financial accounting experience as you will find the role easier to fulfil. You will find helpful to use a computer if you have access to one, because our electronic cashbook template will make your role easier. However, this is not mandatory.
