Charities offered help from World Bank retirees

Retired World Bank employees will lend their skills to UK charities free of charge through a new partnership with the Cranfield Trust.

Members of the World Bank’s retirees association, The 1818 Society British Chapter, already offer their professional expertise in fields such as economics and transport to organisations working in the developing world.

The new collaboration will match retirees with clients of the Cranfield Trust, which places consultants from the commercial sector with voluntary organisations.
