Martyn Lewis, chair of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, is to be given a second three-year term in the role.

The former newsreader, who was appointed chair of the umbrella body in 2010, has been asked by the NCVO board to stand for another three years.

His appointment must be ratified by NCVO members at its annual general meeting on 14 November, but he is the only candidate.

He will stand down in 2016 because NCVO rules allow a maximum of two three-year terms.

Lewis was recently appointed chair of the group that will draw up guidelines for trustees on chief executive pay.

He is also chair of the awards committee for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, which is regarded as the MBE for volunteer groups.
