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.

“We have retirees of a range of ages and many are keen to continue to put their skills to good use,” says Christine Purdy from the chapter’s outreach programme. “We have an active pool of about 30 volunteers and are a resource which the Cranfield Trust can call on when needed.”
