Volunteers Week - Rich

Moore East Midlands Associate, Rich, shares his experience of volunteering at Nene Valley Railway.

When a former Partner of the firm retired, the Nene Valley Railway was looking for a replacement to join their finance committee and I joined in mid 2018. Since that time I have taken on further responsibility first becoming the Chairman of the finance committee itself and as of late 2020 I joined the main board of the Charity as well.

The role is quite varied and incorporates various aspects of governance around the railway from setting budgets, applying for grants and considering the finances to considering which areas of the railway to improve and even buying trains for us to run.

The experience has also been a great help in understanding what it is like to be on the other side of the table from where I sit in my day to day role auditing clients.
